      The first problem should be as easy as not drawing the insertion point
      when there is marked text (add to the "if (...)" statement in line 471
      in MMTextView.h). Or, if you draw the insertion point _after_ drawing
      the marked text and updating its position so that it is at the right
      place in the marked text you should be able to deal with both problems
      at once. Well, that's just an idea.

      Do you think you can send me a new patch with the above problems fixed
      before I merge?
