This is a bit of a timing thing which you become aware of using it for a while, anyway...
1. Pick a Moodle site that you don't have a hugely fast connection to. Moodle.org Using Moodle will do
2. Turn off HTML editor in your profile
3. Make a forum posting
4. Do it quick... start typing in the box as soon as it appears
Typically, you will get no more than a few characters typed before the focus jumps away from the edit box. This seems to be related to the drag-and-drop area as 2.2 and earlier are not affected. This is an annoyance. With the HTML editor on, it's a non-issue as the HTML editor is even slower to load than the drag-and-drop box.
It would be nice to be able to disable the drag and drop box in forums either site-wide or per user. It is mostly used only very occasionally.
