Comment (by ttcoder):

 FWIW, still there in hrev45325 .

 Out of curiosity I used the haiku.it.su.se search engine and found two
 instances of ":inline_only":

 - [http://haiku.it.su.se:8180/source/xref/src/add-

 (namely, {{{message->AddBool("be:inline_only", true);}}}  )

 So I'm still leaning to this theory: there is a race condition in the
 bootup-time initialization of the i18ln code, which makes it sometime look
 up data in the wrong place, i.e. in the BMessage above (or in the TEXT
 data segment/area of the code ?? that's where the "be:inline_only" text
 originates, before being written to a BMessage field of course).

 As to the difference between Pe and BTextView, maybe it's because
 processes things differently depending on whether the BView is "input
 method ''aware'' " or not (?)
