Since this does not happen when the internal clipboard ta uses has quotes
in it, this problem seems to be due to the way terminals "paste" data from
an external source (e.g. clipboard). It looks like text is "typed" into
the terminal, which can trigger 'char_added' events. I don't think there
is a way to detect such a "paste". The only option seems to be to simply
turn off _M.textadept.editing.AUTOPAIR and
_M.textadept.editing.AUTOINDENT, but this is probably not desirable.
