      Description

      When you have some Greek text in a QTextEdit and you click on the word, very often the cursor will jump to the end of the word instead of being placed between two letters. This is a major issue as it makes it very difficult to select certain characters of a Greek word. It is very easy to reproduce and it happens regardless of which font is chosen (I reproduced with the standard textedit example with two Greek words). Just open the greek.html file I've attached in the textedit example and try to click around on the 2nd word on the 3rd letter (a nu). The cursor will jump to the end of the word.
