I am trying to edit LOG_BUF_SHIFT, which has a value of 17
(this is x86_64).

I want to change the 7 to 9, making it 19, so I double-click on the "17"
(single-click won't give me an edit cursor). The edit cursor is
immediately after the "17", so it's like
with the | cursor blinking. What I expect to be able to do is
Backspace, enter 9, press Enter, and the new value is 19.
But Backspace does nothing. I just have to enter the complete new
value: 19. So IMO it does not act like an edit box so much as a
replacement box.
Also, the new value that I enter is displayed/written over the old value,
so I see 17 in white-on-blue and over that I see 19 in black until I
press Enter, then I see only 19 in white-on-blue.

BTW, if I edit DEFAULT_HOSTNAME, which begins as "(none)" and I change it
to "xyz" and then change it to <empty string>, it becomes
Should I have to enter "(none)" to get it back to (none)?  I guess so.
