You have found a bug, which I logged for fixing in our bug tracking system. I also updated your Telerik points.
I noticed that if you select the text and delete it, the textbox is not deleted.
The bug reported in your first post is logged with high priority and if possible we will fix it during the service packs following the Q1 2013 release.
All the best,
the Telerik team
