It looks like doing this call to find the end of the line

selection.modify(SelectionController::AlterationExtend, SelectionController::DirectionRight, LineBoundary);

does not do what's expected. I suspect it thinks the end of the line is the same position as the start of the line. 

I think the better solution is to just use the existing

endOfLine() method that already exists.
