Not sure if this is the same, but it sounds similar to something I have 
experienced in recent squeaks. See if this helps at all:

'From Squeak5.1 of 23 August 2016 [latest update: #16548] on 3 November

     super keyStroke: evt.
     view scrollSelectionIntoView.

     "Make a cheap check and guess editing. (Alternative would be to 
copy the old contents and then compare them against the new ones. Maybe 
add a better hook in the TextEditor."
     (self readOnly not and: [evt keyCharacter isAlphaNumeric or: [evt 
keyCharacter isSeparator]])
         ifTrue: [view textEdited: self contents].! !
