Arg! Sorry about that. I should have though to try that test. I thought
that sequence of runs would always be terminated at a line break. It does
not do this so that clever formating tricks can be performed. This third
patch fixes the behaviour noticed by you by looking for the last run on a
line as well.

Give it a whirl and let me know of any new problems you find.



PS. Any chance of looking at the "Insert Symbol" patch? I've received no
feedback for 4 weeks.
