This bug has pestered me once too often!
I type some text into the editor window. Then I am not sure of the exact events, but it involves some cursor repositioning usually to correct or add some text, after which I am certain that the cursor is at the end of the text I have netered so far. Then I hit the return key to start a new paragraph, but for some reason the cursor jumps to the second character in the edit window and inserts the carriage return there.
When that happened as I was typing in this text, the "T" in "This" at the start of the message was all by itself and in the next paragraph was the text I typed after I hit enter and before my eyes registered what had happened an signaled my fingers to stop. It sort of looked like this:

At now we're preparing this upgrade and I hope that will go smoothly.
