Guys,

  Great job with 3.4! There is no such thing as bug-free code, but for an
initial AOO release - this looks pretty clean. Here is a bug that is just
frustrating. When pasting into a writer document (either plain text or text
from another writer doc) the cursor is moved back to the start of the insertion
after the paste is done. Meaning - after you paste some text, the cursor moves
back to the beginning of what you just pasted and you have to either arrow, or
use end, to get back to the end of what you just pasted to be able to continue
typing in the document.

Example:

  If I have the following line with the cursor at the position shown by the
carrot:

This is just a line where
                         ^

  and I want to paste ' I want to add some text'. After I paste the text, the
cursor is moved back to the beginning of the paste leaving the current cursor
in the middle of the sentence instead of the end. eg:

This is just a line where I want to add some text
                         ^

It's like somebody got confused and used 'memcpy' instead of 'mempcpy' when
copying the new text into the current line.

I don't know what the actual issue is, but that is how it behaves.

Again - great job! Let me know if I can send anything else.
