WYSIWYG editor makes it hard to add text below referenced material in "replies"

Try clicking "reply" and then attempting to add text below the referenced text. It's difficult to get non-reply text to show up at the base of the new comment.

To get it to work, i needed to press return, giving me a new line of "referenced" material, and then click the "outdent" button. That made sense to me as a programmer who is comfortable with wikitext (and after i spent about 5 minutes puzzling it over), but a wysiwyg editor is not pitched toward programmers: it's pitched toward regular users, who will probably just want to click their mouse in the edit box below the referenced text and have it Just Work.

the WYSIWYG editor is a really nice plugin, by the way, and goes a long way toward making trac instances more accessible to regular people, which in turn expands the number of roles that trac can possibly fill. This is the only problem i've run into with this plugin so far. Kudos!
