Here is another bug with "Keep multiple spaces": display corruption.
At least I think it depends on "Keep multiple spaces" being on.


Adjust the window width so that the first words of each line are like this:


  This, skys, hair, probably, estimate, the, many, XXXXintergalactic,
  14, Universe, solar.


  This, northern, subtended, galaxy, of, at, believing, it, low, XXXXthen,
  expanding, solar.

With Preferences > General > Keep multiple lines turned on, use the
mouse/trackball to move the cursor to the the left of the first "XXXX".
Delete this set of Xs, left to right.  Repeat in turn for the other 4
groups.  Now the cursor is to the left of "Meanwhile", press Space.

Now move the cursor, with the mouse/trackball, to between the (erroneous)
"ll" in "accelleration".

I get display corruption which looks like:

   a "Big Bang".  onal theories . . . heating and accelleration

With Windows, it is "nal" instead of "onal" and with Debian the left part
of 'h' in "heating" is whited out.  The cursor is just to the right of the
corrupted area.  On Debian, using the mouse/trackball to place the cursor
at the end of the paragraph changes the text in the corrupted area.
Pressing a key such as 'x' at this point leads to corruption on the last
line too.

Amaya is evidently displaying the end of the paragraph at the point where
a second space was just inserted.

Scrolling the affected area in and out of the window does not fix it.
Nor does saving the file, though save and reload fixes it.  The file
itself is not corrupted.

Clicking the cursor on the second paragraph fixes the corruption on
both Debian and Windows.

Changing the width of the window fixes it too.
