Selection on double click selects too much on Windows

    Details

      Description

      This is probably related to RT-16628. Take this example:
      import javafx.application.Application;
      import javafx.scene.Scene;
      import javafx.scene.control.TextArea;
      import javafx.stage.Stage;

      public class TextAreaReadOnly extends Application {

      public TextAreaReadOnly() {
      }

      @Override
      public void start(Stage primaryStage) throws Exception {
      TextArea textarea = new TextArea();
      textarea.setText("| Apples | Oranges |");
      textarea.setEditable(false);

      Scene scene = new Scene(textarea, 600, 400);
      primaryStage.setScene(scene);
      primaryStage.show();
      }

      public static void main(String[] args) {
      launch(args);
      }
      }

      If you run it (on Windows) and double click on Apples, it will select Apples, the following space, the pipe sign and the space after the pipe-sign. It should stop right after the first space. This at least is what input fields, notepad and wordpad do under Windows
