Lol, yes you're right. In every example I was like oops, that's a bug :P

what will happen? (can't test it right now)

So, you suggest we drop sandy?
I'm not telling it "in a bad way", but your project seems (from the comments, I haven't tried it yet) very promising and more worth coding than sandy.
Is that right? (question to sandy users too).
I want to code a text editor that is suckless and actually matters. If your implementation is better, we better code for your project.

Cheers! :)
