Note: I can reproduce this on my machine as well. What seems to happen is that the width of the 'a' characters displayed (the ones that I'm continually typing) get smaller and smaller, i.e., the font gets squished up in a strange way.
Thanks - Ben. :)
In version 1.3 the font don't get smaller but the box moves to the left.
Confirmed Sander's comment: when you continually press on a letter, the input label (which becomes red as you're making errors) will shrink to the from right to left then disappear. Then no input is possible.
Bug confirmend and partially fixed (by increasing the width of the students line and adding a limit of about 300 characters).
I'll have to rework the sliding line calculation to include a masking out of text to the left which is no longer visible. Would also increase performance a bit.
Status changed to "ASSIGNED" and I'll work on it until the next version.
Fixed in version 1.5.3.
