Yes, but I'm seeing many other issues:

1. I pasted a large amount of text into the editor and it made the tab
freeze (Chromium 18.0.997.0).

2. With Firefox, I start editing text, sometimes empty lines appear
unexpectedly just above my text.

3. The preview button at the bottom of the page sometimes shows a
spinning animation forever, sometimes it fails with this error message:
"Some parts of the edit form did not reach the server; double-check that
your edits are intact and try again."

I guess this ajax editor is still too immature; If we don't want
trouble, we'd better wait to enable it until wikipedia.org does.
