This appears to have caused major cursor motion bugs and caret
Try clicking in the middle of a multi-line paragraph or try to use the up
and down arrow keys in said paragraph.
Look at the nice long paragraph in section 4 of the attached document.
Even on a single line paragraph the caret appears 2 chars to the left of
where you click your mouse.
> I have removed the block width chache as this turned out to be a

> ri.m_iLength = 1;
> iWidth = getGraphics()->getTextWidth(ri);
