EditBox cursor issue in 7.3

If you create several dozen lines of text in a multi-line EditBox (MacroFrameText is a convenient example, add 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 broken into 10 lines and copy and paste it a few times), and then you try editing text near the end, the cursor is positioned away from where the insertion point is.

Can anyone corroborate that this is or is not happening with them?

This indeed does happen. Tested using TinyPad. Once you go below the first scroll point it starts happening.

If you have a couple of scroll pages and scroll all the way to the end, the scroll bar starts jumping up and down.

I've seen the same issue in my addon (IfThen) too.

The editbox works just like normal tho and I have no idea how to fix it...

anyone got suggestions?

This is happening to many others, and I've seen it in three addons so far.

For the morbidly curious, this was my adventure:
