Unfortunately, it's a general low-level problem in the editor that was
brought out for somewhat arcane reasons in 2.0rc1.  It is worse in 
environments like vmware.

This is the same problem that was reported on this list earlier and we'll
of course fix it in the next release.

Sorry about the inconvenience.
