are you using?

A patch :)
More seriously, is this the GTK front end, or the framebuffer? If the
later, which renderer? SDL? Frambuffer? X?
I don't know. I start netsurf which connects to the default homepage
and I am presented with a field I can write in with "Google searc" on the
"Google searc" and not "Google search", another indication of netsurf
unerestimating the lenght of a string.
Is there any test I can perform to find out in which program (GTK frontend, framebufer or
other) is the problem generated?
Thank you for your help.
