It might be useful for some firefox users
I've encountered strange cursor behavior in the online python editor - sometimes it doesn't match mouse position. When I scrolling content of the window, row numbers scroll with different pace. If I click after that 30rd row for example, 28th line will highlight.
As it turned out the cause of such behavior is the firefox add-on "Yet another smooth scrolling". I don't really need this addon, so I just delete it.

Mine NEVER matches but it is always the same distance to the right. (FF 10.0.2) I can't remember exactly, but it's about 5 or 6 spaces beyond the end of the line. And if do a backspace, it deletes the last char in my code line. But if I forget and don't make my cursor go way right, it might delete in the middle of the code line. It's been like that since day one. I just figured while it was a real pain, it didn't compare to the orange bar and pop up Something's wrong window submission issues, so I didn't mention it. And yes, I've also had the numbers issue, but mostly a page refresh fixes that. Still, as you say, a bit disconcerting.
And, early this morning (about 5 or 6 a.m. EDT Sat/March 17) I couldn't see anything in the Coursework section in Ice Weasel and it had the error msg with a try again later INSIDE the video window.
I'm using Chrome for Mac on a MBPro - the cursor sits correctly laterally but one line below. This has been the behavior since the start of the course.
I was also attributing auto-capitalisation to the interpreter but realised that I had text expanding software turned on. To counter this, I have a simple keyboard shortcut to toggle it on or off.
