Fix Character Count in JComments 3

We use JComments on our Joomla 1.5 based website.

The comments have a character limit. The number of "symbols" remaining displays at the bottom of the comment box.

Often the number of symbols left will be 5 or 10 or 30 and the comment will still be rejected as "comment too long".

We have posted this problem in JComments forum and they said it would be fixed in version 2.2.0.2. It was not fixed.

I just tested JComments 2.3 and it is still not fixed.

The problem can be recreated by leaving a comment with a lot of line breaks.

We believe the problem relates to the javascript not correctly identifying line breaks in the symbols count.

This project involves fixing the code. Please don't just tell us to upgrade Joomla. That is not a fix.

We would like a fix that works for both JComments 2.2.0.2 and JComments 2.3.

We do not enable Custom BBCode.

This is an example of a comment that returns "Comment Too Long" even though the character counter says "1 symbols left" with 1500 allowed.
