           Summary: Cursor jumps to the end of the summary field after
                    pasting more text than is allowed
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified

Copying and pasting strings into the summary field

1. Go to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:Sandbox?action=edit
2. Copy a long string (but not longer than the limit for an edit summary). E.g.
the copyright text which is above the editbox.
3. Paste the string in the summary field
4. Copy another string which is long enough to guarantee that both strings
together have more characters than the limit for a summary. E.g.:
[[Test]] [[Test]] [[Test]] [[Test]] [[Test]] [[Test]] [[Test]]
5. Position the cursor in the beginning of the summary (in the video, I pressed
TAB, since I was in the editbox)
6. Paste the second string

At this point, you'll notice the cursor to disappear. For some reason it jumps
to the end of the summary field instead of staying right after the pasted
string.

This is very inconvenient, since in order to rephrase my summary into a shorter
one, I now have to find where the first string starts in order to delete the
pasted summary!
