    Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but this has not been fixed.

    There's a thread about it somewhere...

    Try typing this sentence in the email:

    Type this for bug.T

    Duplicate it by using the period key as oppose to double space button, and then manually type capital T. Here's where the bug kicks in, backspace to remove T and everything just keeps on deleting.

    Personally I will never run into this problem, but it is still a bug.

    its a bug that can happen to anyone who manually types a full stop/period and then types any capital letter without adding a space in between. If you hit backspace to correct, the bug kicks. This can be annoying to people who don't know about the double space shortcut and trying to correct the sentence.

    It also happens to me when typing in a web form when the page hasn't fully loaded. On a side note, even when the page is fully loaded, I still often get typing lag.

    Huh! Never ran into this bug, but I can actually find a really good use for it. There've been times where I felt I needed to start over from scratch on a text message and had to hit Delete multiple times. Now I know to invoke this bug. :D

    You can also just hold down the backspace button...
