Insert new text rather than overwrite?

When I put the caret in the midst of existing text and paste or type new text, it overwrites existing text. How do I change to insert mode?

UPDATE: this happened only the first time I used the source editor. When I reopened it to show the problem to a colleague, it naturally worked as expected (inserting new text).
