We talked a bit in IRC but just to let the list know...

This change looks great!  The text gets wrapped and the cursor moves to
the next line as the line reaches the full width of the input bar.  And
the up/down arrow keys shifts the cursor to the previous/next line as
you would expect.  Good work! :-)

Now, a minor nit pick is that, the very lower portion of the text
appears to be cut off.  For instance, when you type 'j', the lower
portion of the letter is not displayed and it looks like 'i'.  Have you
tried EditEngine::GetTextHeight() ?  That may give you a more
appropriate height to use rather than hard-coding it to the 1/4 of the
height of the input box.

I've checked in this change to your feature branch, though I didn't
check in those extra blank lines.
