The exception was easy to fix (and does not manifest itself
in released versions).

I can, indeed, reproduce erratic cursor behaviour. This text
field is based on the Scintilla code base and was written by
Ian Haywood, as far as I remember. It


has been in a state of bit rot for several years and I don't
really feel confident to wade in and attempt to locate the
problem in the face of better supported replacements readily

I'd really suggest you look at the SimpleNotes plugin as a
replacement for the decaying "Progress Notes" one.
