I can reproduce this in the kitchen sink.

I have the following text typed out:

This is some placeholder text that will be folded inline.
This is some placeholder text that will be folded inline.
More text.
<p>The cursor in this paragraph text will be offset by 1 row.<p>
<p>Everything after this will be offset as well due to the folds in the row before too.</p>

I have font size at 14px and soft wrap at 40 chars.

I open the console and use JavaScript to perform the following folds:

Range = require('ace/range').Range;
ace.session.addFold('...', new Range(0, 8, 0, 42));
ace.session.addFold('...', new Range(1, 8, 1, 42));
ace.session.addFold('...', new Range(3, 7, 3, 51));

The result should look like this:

Folded text.

Then I cut the first 3 lines:

Cut text.

As you can see, an extra line showed up at the end.

If I try to put my cursor on the line <p>Everything after this will be offset, it won't work as the cursor keeps pointing to the end of line 2.

Now, if I put my cursor starting at line 3, as well due to the folds in the row, or anywhere below that, and then delete some characters, I will actually be deleting characters from the line above, because while the cursor is on line 3, the cursor seems to think it is actually on the line above.

You can't really tell, but I tried to delete the word folds on line 3 but the cursor deleted the word this on the line above.

Delete text.

I am using Chrome 26.0.1410.43.
