Alt+Click off the end of a paragraph selects first line at horizontal position rather than end of paragrpah

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a paragraph several lines long (no carriage returns) with the final line about halfway across the page
  2. Alt+Click anywhere to the right of the final line on the same vertical space.

Expected result

The newly created cursor is put at the end of the line, consistent with how left clicking off the end of a paragraph normally works.

Actual result

The cursor is created on the first line of the paragraph at the horizontal position of the click.
