I've not seen that. Do you mean a textarea line which is soft-wrapped to a
line out of sight below the visible display? I've not seen that here.

So if you move the caret with cursor-right key, it doesn't reach the end
of the displayed text?
The last character on a soft-wrapped line is a space, but you can't put
the caret to the right of it, a caret after the space is on the start of
the next line.
It gets as far as the length of the line below it, it looks like it is
confused as to which line it is actually on. Pressing enter appears
to act as if it is on the line below too (and then refreshes it and
everything works as it should). If I can get it to do it again, I'll
save a copy of my text.

This is concerning. I'll have a look.
I start with about 400MB, it disappears to nothing during use, and
when I quit NetSurf it only frees up less than 100MB. It looks like
something isn't getting freed.
I've just been playing around with it trying to reproduce the "last
line" bug (I couldn't), and I'm down to 150MB - after quitting NetSurf
we can eliminate that.
