This is a feature.  To get a hint why is this happening, go to the `t'
of the "Editor", type "C-x =", and note the value of point Emacs
prints in the echo area.  Now press C-f and then type "C-x =" again,
and again note the value of point.  Press C-f again and "C-x =" again,
and you will see that the value of point jumps instead of increasing
by one.

If you still don't understand what's going on, put the cursor on the
`r' of "Editor" and type this:

    M-: (text-properties-at (point)) RET

See that "intangible t" part?  Now recall that Emacs copies text with
all its properties, and the riddle should be solved.
