Yes, I got that idea too, still, everything works perfectly except  
for this minor issue. So I hope to not have to do that. Also, if you  
think about it, the textcontainer is the place to be also for things  
like annotations and stuff, the layoutmanager does the layout but it  
is the role of the textcontainer to tell where.
Also, the textcontainer is quite light weight and still relatively  
basic, so nice to subclass. The layoutmanager is a monster in terms  
of complexity.

Aha, that explains a lot...
