Thanks for the responses. I searched far and wide, and couldn't find
anyone else having the same problem. I have Tk 8.4.19-2 and 8.5.6-3 on
this machine. I remember changing the font a while back (before
upgrading to Jaunty) because it was barely readable. I guess the issue
is with Tk 8.5.6-3. Just found I can move the cursor (by left clicking)
if I hold the control key down. Shift arrow keys works for selection.
Still not so good. Cheers.
