Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
- open a footprint in the footprint editor
- hover over a pad, and press E to open the properties
- select the "Size X" Textbox (on the right side, so the textcursor will be at the end of the numbers)
- press backspace
- Text cursor now moves to the beginning of the textbox

I've seen this as well but only on linux. It doesn't happen on windows.

Also selecting some character(s) and typing to replace the selection move the cursor.

Where this happens seems to be random, although there must be some logic. In Pad Properties it happens in:

Size X
Size Y
Shape offset X
Shape offset Y
Trapezoid delta
Hole size X
Hole size Y

But not in:
Pad number
Position X
Position Y
Pad to die length
Corner size
Corner radius

I'm on Linux right now but I saw something similar in Windows, too. I'll have to check that.

I'm about to commit a change which will likely fix this. (However, since I don't have linux I can't test that. Please re-open if it does not, in fact, fix it.)

Thanks for the potential fix, Ill report back tomorrow when a new nightly has been released.
The speed of you guys is actually making the nightly delay seem quite long
