[Wine] I-bar "frozen" in text box, The Journal

I just updated Wine to 1.1.43, and I'm now encountering this problem with The Journal software by DavidRM. (Btw, I'm running Ubuntu Karmic with all the latest updates.) This problem did not occur before I updated Wine.

Problem is the visible I-bar won't move in the main text box. It remains on the first space of the line of text that is "in focus." However, it seems my ability to type isn't hindered.

For example, if I press the "end" key and type, my text correctly appears at the end of the line. But the I-bar remains at the beginning. See:

My text appears at the end, where I expect it to, but the I-bar remains at the first space on the line.

Essentially, I can type, but I can't tell where my text will appear until I start typing!

Also, it appears I cannot highlight and cut/copy text unless I highlight ALL of the text with my cursor.

Any ideas?
