Description stan 2010-06-02 18:31:47 UTC
Description of problem:  If trying to select text in a console for paste with the middle mouse button at the cursor, the cursor freezes at the start point and nothing happens.  It works in an xterm (I used konsole).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.20.6

How reproducible:  Every time I try it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Go to a console (eg Ctl-Alt-F2)
2.  ls
3.  try to select some text with the mouse to paste at the prompt
Actual results:  Mouse cursor location freezes

Expected results:  Selected text is highlighted and middle mouse button pastes at the cursor.

Additional info:  Worked on 2010-05-21 (near release of last kernel to updates testing).  Not sure exactly when it stopped working as I can't remember last date I used after that.  There have been *many* updates in that time.  System is fully updated as of 2010-06-02 with updates-testing repository enabled.

This is working now.  I compiled the new kernel from updates testing as I usually do to customize it to my system, and when I rebooted, the mouse selection is working again.  Sorry for the noise.
