The most likely reason for this behavior is that the dimensions of the
input field are too small to contain the text (including ascenders and
descenders). Try enlarging the object and see what happens. XForms
is quite twitchy about this.

You can also call fl_adjust_form_size() to compensate for
strangenesses in the dimensions of fonts between machines. See the
manual for details.
