HI all, i've noticed that the text cursor autmatically steps back in xubuntu, xfce 4.8.0.
Interestingly, it happens with all applications (e.g. Firefox, lyx). Any suggestions/ideas? When editing an email in hotmail, the text looks like follows:

goes textlthois like coes n all no hosw

as you see, it is very annoying, as while typing, I don't look all the time to the cursor's
position, but if I don't pay attention, soon it becomes a pain in the *** to type.
I'm running xubuntu on an EEE 1001PXD. Thanks in advance.
