OS5 Text Inputs scroll with cursor? Why? Fix?

Visit this test page with an OS5 device such as the 9650:




Click in either field and enter 6 characters (the max allowed). Then use your trackpad/arrow keys to move out of the field to your right.

See what's happening? As the cursor moves to the right, as it nears the end of the text field, the text within begins to scroll off the left hiding the first few characters.


It's as if the text field thinks its content is wider than it actually is.


Anyone know of a fix or workaround for this odd behavior?
