Trailing hyphens are not treated correctly WRT the cursor - if I click with the mouse to the right of a line of text within a paragraph, the cursor is placed after the last letter, comma or full stop in the text, but before the space (presumably because the display of spaces is suppressed). However, the cursor is also placed before any trailing hyphen, which is very non-obvious. If I click beyond the end of a line, I would expect the cursor to be placed at the extreme end of the line, *after* any characters, even hyphens. Is this because OOo is treating hard hyphens in the same way as soft hyphens (i.e. those introduced by OOo itself as part of the hyphenation process)?

MRU->FME: when there is a simple dash (or call it minus sign) at the end of line, it is not possible to put the cursor right of it by mouseclick. Only Enter-key will do this.
