Steps to reproduce

To reproduce this, I’ve created

Set your IME to the Microsoft Pinyin IME (Chinese (Simplified, China))

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Focus on the editable div.
  2. Pres the ‘a’ character and then hit space to quickly end the composition

Observe that you cannot type again.

If I re-order the calls (ie. focus first, then clear text content) this no longer reproduce. Similarly, if I wrap the focus call in a window.setTimeout(…, 0), this no longer reproduces.
