Bug Description

The Library Symbol Properties in the library editor doesn't work properly. I can't edit fields (like value, datasheet etc) of some of footprints. The text input fields are broken - either clicking on them doesn't enable editing or the input is malformed (example: when entering word "kicad" in "value" field then only "d" is displayed).

The issue exhibits in most of but not all of my libraries. I noticed that in the attached library the problem occurs but the input works when I remove two lines from the file:
F5 "ICK BGA 14 X 14 X 10" 0 -50 50 H V C CNN "Full_Part_Name"
F6 "http://fischerelektronik.de/web_fischer/en_GB/heatsinks/B02/Heatsinks%20for%20BGAs/PR/ICKBGA14x14x10_/$productCard/additionalInfos/index.xhtml#" 0 -650 50 H I C CNN "Datasheet_URL"
