IE Editor regression: can't focus a blank editor

Run test_Editor.html in IE6 or IE7.
Delete all the text in the first editor (I used Ctrl+A followed by backspace).
Now click somewhere in the open space of the browser window and then click back into the middle of the editor. You cannot get an input caret unless you know to click on the first line (which is blank). This is a regression from 1.1.

Now do the same thing in IE8. You cannot get an input caret even if you click on the first line.

(In [16555]) Fixes #7274, #8476. On mousedown in IE, remove previous saved cursor position, and additionally set the cursor to the end if the event was to empty space.
