I keep seeing exactly that as well. I believe this is a glitch 
somewhere in the engine. I have seen it as far as version 2.6 and 
while working in MetaCard. It usually happens for me when selecting 
the field content with the mouse and accidently misclicking 
somewhere, I believe by the edge of the field. I never figured out 
the exact trigger, but since clicking elsewhere resets it, I learned 
to live with it and just watch to make clean clicks.
