I just got the latest patch and this is not what I'm seeing (fwiw, the patch 
didn't change this particular behavior). Given these lines, put the cursor on 
that final 'x'. hit cw.

             break  # done, get rid of the dialog box

Here's what results:

             break  # done, get rid of the dialog bo.cancel_screen(scrn)

It gobbled the 'x', the newline, and the first word 'self' of the following 
line. Not so good.

Thank you. I'm grateful for your responsiveness on these issues.
