Continuously re-wraps lines

Bug Description

Binary package hint: klavaro

This bug affects Klavaro 1.5.0-1 in Ubuntu Maverick.

In "Adaptability", about once every 15 exercises the following behavior occurs: when the cursor is at the last character of the last word in a line, that word gets wrapped. After 400 milliseconds the word is brought up into the original line, the text below is rewrapped, and this persists for 800ms. Then the text gets wrapped again. (Timings seem relevant here so I actually measured them.)

I'm attaching an animated GIF showing the two states of the text window with the frames timed accordingly.

Hi, this is a very annoying issue, I guess it came from some change in Pango (in the GTK library), some time ago. So, I don't have much to do to solve this for now. A work around would be remaking completely the cursor implementation, but this is beyond my possibilities now. Sorry.

Hi Felipe,
thanks for taking the time to look into this. Klavaro rocks well enough as it is. :)
