Cursor can disappear from commit message box
Created originally on Bitbucket by esskov (Esben Skovenborg)
The text box for messages in the commit dialog has some problems with focus. If I click inside the (empty) text box, to enter a new message, nothing happens to visually indicate that the text box now has focus. It would be nice if a cursor would appear, to let me know that I can start typing a message. The dialog has no indication at all of whether the empty text box has focus or (say) the file list.
Now when I start typing a new message, the text - and the cursor - always appears after the second letter. The cursor now remains visible while typing, until I press enter to get a new line. Then the cursor disappears again! This would normally indicate that the text box has lost focus, but it has not. When I continue typing the cursor re-appears, and so on.
Furthermore, if the cursor is at the beginning of the second line in the text box, and I press 'left', the cursor also disappears. If I then type a letter, the letter - and the cursor - appears on a new line, not on the previous line as expected.
Actually I'm not sure how much of the above is a bug or intended behaviour, but IMHO it's quite annoying. BTW, I'm using Windows XP.
