"Allow placement of caret after end of line" disables left arrow key?


Hello.  I noticed that if I check "Allow placement of caret after end of line" (virtual spaces--the default editing mode, IntelliJ IDEA) then place my "caret" at the beginning of a line, then hit the "left" arrow key...
I would expect it to take me to the end of the previous line, but instead it does nothing.  Please please tell me this is a bug.  Or if there's no response here I'll file a ticket anyhow.  Thank you.

Hi Roger,

Looks like it was done intentionally but the rationale is not clear.

Will check with the author.

After a slight feeling of dejavu found that the same question was already asked and answered - http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-72392
