If TAB character is used inside the text. The
selection using mouse marks wrong area. The beginning
and end of this area begins at position which is a
number of characters in this line without reflect to
size of TAB space, which is not one character but
usually 8.

Example

this is a test text
^begin mark

this is a test text
^begin selection

    There is a another related problem with previous. Lines
    With tabs.
    (ver. 0.93.0)
    If line contains any char before TAB char, then newly typed
    (or deleted) characters are inserted (or deleted) from
    incorrect position. For example try line similar to this:
    #<TAB><TAB>some text
    End of example.
    Try selection with mouse, insert or delete some chars

    This is a LessTif issue, not Xlt. Things may have gotten a
    bit mixed up during the split of Xlt from LessTif.
