[Gambas-user] Problems with the editor after update to 3.16.1

i use arch Linux and have some gambas programs running for my desktop 

Gambas is installed using pacman in Arch-Linux by "pacman -S gambas3".

After an update of gambas (or some other tool, i am not sure with this) 
the program changed the behaviour.

It was shown in the center of the screen, now it is located in the 
top-left, and background-color is not set anymore.

Now i tried to edit the code to change an Exec-command to start a new 
version of an installed program, and the editor is unuseable for me.

The cursor is located to a position to add text, but when i enter the 
text, the text is added on a different position of the text.

When i input the numbers 0123456789 the cursor is located more than one 
character to the right of the 9. When i move the cursor from the first 
character to the right, it is somewhere in the middle of the 3 when it 
should be at the beginning of it, when it is located before the 8 the 
press of a key adds the character before the 7.

I have had this problem some years in the past, was on some version of 
Ubuntu, perhaps in 2015. It disappeared, i don't remember what i needed 
to do to get this working, or if it was solved by an update.

I use the Mate-Desktop-environment.

Any hints what can be done to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot for your answers.
