Bug#598837: kwrite: Kwrite regularly goes into "backwards typing" mode

Package: kwrite
Version: 4:4.4.5-1
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***

Hi, if I use kwrite to actively edit fairly large text files (with
long, wrapping lines, in dynamic wrap mode), then after about 5-10
minutes kwrite goes into "backwards typing" mode.

By "backward typing" mode, I mean when I press keys, that the cursor
in kwrite doesn't move, but the typed letters appear to the right of
the cursor, with the effect that what you type comes out backwards.

I can move the cursor around by clicking with the mouse, but when I
resume typing, I still have the same problem (at the new cursor

This is pretty annoying - the only way I've found to correct this is
to restart kwrite.
