Samsung Tab3 and Keyboard typing backward-ish

As the proud owner of a new Samsung Tab3 with the optional keyboard cover, I've been trying to use it as much as possible to see how well it works.

At most everything it excels, but for one thing.  In Gmail replies, the cursor position will often jump backward a word and start typing behind the last word I typed - or backward typing.  I can't find a setting in the Tablet or in Gmail that would indicate that I wanted to have right to left typing, and I'm not touching the screen in any way to indicate that I want to move the cursor position.

At this point it may be that the keyboard is slightly undocked, or it's an odd conflict between the device and the WYSIWYG editor pane in Gmail.  I've seen similar behavior on the Mac with Outlook on Chrome, which leads me to think the jumping cursor and reverse typing may be a software conflict.  As I find more about it I'll update . . .
