  1. To reproduce use the below tag on page:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

  1. Copy contents from test.txt
  2. Open image dialog, paste the text in "Alternative text" filed
  3. Start moving the dialog. I got the best results when moving dialog to the left viewport border.

Replying to j.swiderski:

Your TC is confirmed with IE9+Compat as well. No need of special configurations.

That's clearly an IE issue. Let's hope a workaround can be easily found.

Basically, it looks like we need to enforce a fixed width for the field on IE8-.

8971.patch is not a solution but rather a hack.

It looks like the bug can be workaround with a absolute positioned input element.

So we're in a hack competition at this point :) I just wanted to be less risky :P

Anyway, your patch looks good. What a browser bug like this could ask for? ;)
