No cursor on Write Post page

ENV: trunk r8145

From the dashboard I click Write a Post. The Write Post page loads, but the cursor is NOT in the title field for my to start typing.

Pressing Tab, and the cursor is in the Title field.

I already had drafts before doing this test.

It appears a new problem has come to the surface that looks similar as described in this ticket but a little more severe.

I'm a firefox user and i have the latest version installed, a friend of mine (IE user) has installed the latest WP version 2.2.1 and what happens is that he can't simply write a post. The problem may be due to the visual editor being checked but this shouldn't be allowed to cause a problem.

I can't verify unfortunately because IE causes login problems now as well for me.

In Firefox the visual editor is the cause of the problem not being able to write a post that shows when published, you can place your cursor in the body field and type a post but without unchecking the visual editor it does not show when published.

The Post title does show though.

I have a previous version hosted locally on my computer and everything works fine as it should.

With the latest version it's also not possible to switch from visual to code, you're stuck with visual unless you manually uncheck it.

All in all a pretty serious problem that needs to be resolved.
A thread on the support forum has been created as well by someone else and he is not alone experiencing this problem.
