Asking for comments.

Fl_Text_Editor in overstrike mode does some strange (unusal, unexpected) things. Other editors seem to behave differently.

(1) When a selection exists and text is inserted by pressing ctrl/v then Fl_Text_Editor removes the selection and overstrikes the following text after the previous selection. The expected behavior would be to replace only the selected text. gedit behaves as expected (IMHO), I didn't check other editors yet.

The attached file Fl_Text_Editor_overstrike_selection.patch fixes this.

(2) When no selection exists ctrl/v does overstrike the text after the current cursor position. gedit behaves differently: ctrl/v always inserts text, no matter what mode (insert or overstrike) is active.

I didn't investigate further, but I assume that drag'n'drop may have similar issues.

I'm asking for comments on this, since changing the behavior of the editor widget might be a compatibility problem, but I believe the unusual behavior should be investigated and fixed eventually (if needed).
