editbox still broken in 3.1.1. Tried with emulator on Android 4.1.2 and same problem. Only fixed when device has hardware keyboard.
I suppose we are all supposed to be using ui::TextField now? Tried dropping the test code into my project and it goes hunting for "Helvetica" and "Thornburi", which I found in the tests folder and copied over but still not working.
So that leaves me with only JNI calls to get user input. Which I haven't used for ages and have forgotten how to do.
