The bad news is that this is a Flash Player bug. It is only present in
non-ActiveX (non-IE) browsers. Adobe is definitely aware of it, and (we
hope) working toward resolution in a future player.
We don't know of any workaround that works with Flash 8 APIs. When Flash
9 support is complete, it may be possible to work around it. Or not. :-(

To fix it, I thought I could try to replace the text showing in the
field on the fly. I have tried to setText, clearText, addText, etc but
all these reset the caret position to the first character. My last hope
is to access the underlying flash API. I have seen indeed that the text
field API for flash 9 features a replaceText method. I just hope it
already existed in AS2 and that it's accessible from OL.
Can you please help or otherwise give me some advice on ways to resolve
