Bug with TextEditor on Android

TextEditor doesn’t properly delete the text with Backspace key, on Android.

to reproduce:

  • Run JUCE Demo (on a Samsung A5 2017)
  • Go to a text Editor
  • Write N characters
  • Backspace will start deleting letters only after clicking N times on it.

I can’t reproduce this using virtual devices in the AS emulator or on a physical Nexus 6. What version of Android are you using?

Android 8.0.0

and locally, I have no trouble with the simulator either, using Android 8.0.0 on a virtual Nexus 5.
