 I used to have an (old!) SIM card only allowing 12 characters per contact

 I've recently received a new SIM allowing longer names. When updating the
 contact names I stumble upon the following problem over and over again:

 1. select contact by tapping on the name
 2. options -> edit
 3. type the "en" button on the Illume keyboard (I'm using the "Terminal"
 keyboard style)
 4. when you type your character it is not added at the end of the word but
 between the last and the second last character

 For example, if you have the name ABC in your contacts list and you want
 to make it ABCD. Using the "en" and typing D, you will end up with ABDC.

 Before typing I need hit "en" AND click on the right arrow. This moves the
 cursor to the actual end of line.

 It's not blocking at all, but it is annoying.

 I'm using vanilla SHR-U dated 08/08/2009 without any changes to software
 or configurations.
