What browser/system?

I can repro this with FF 8 on Linux.

(In reply to comment #1)

What browser/system?

Windows 7, Chrome/Firefox 8/IE9.

Confirmed in Firefox on Mac OS X as well.

On Chrome, we get paging but the cursor doesn't update.

There's no support for moving the cursor with page up and page down yet, but in
some browsers the key strokes are cancelled (and will do nothing) while in
others they are not (and will cause the page to scroll).

The former is a missing feature, the latter sounds like a bug.

bug #33057 as been created for the feature request portion of this bug.

Now resolved in new version of Visual Editor.
