Using MEL 11.04.00 on XP and editing an HTML file. When I copy a line containing open and close script tags, and then split the line between the open and close tags, MEL displays an 800+ character line of garbage. Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a file melbug.html containing the following:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../std.css" type="text/css">
<title>Test ME bug</title>
<p>Test ME bug with HTML script tag</p>
2. Arrow down to the line that starts with <script …>
3. Copy the line: press Ctrl-C, scroll down one line, press Ctrl-V.
4. Move the cursor out to the beginning of the </script> tag.
5. Press Enter.
The cursor moves down to the beginning of the next line, as it should, but instead of the </script> tag appearing on this line by itself, the new line reads as follows:
This line becomes part of the file if you save it.
This only happens the first time in an editing session. If I delete or undo the line and repeat the copy and line split procedure, the line separates normally and the bug does not recur. The bug does recur in subsequent sessions.
