Description GeoffLeach 2002-12-04 21:41:12 UTC
Description of Problem:

Rather than setting the start of a selection, single-click on the left mouse
button extends the selection.  There appears to be no particular reason why a
point on the xterm is chosen as the start.  Double-click acts the same way. 
Clicking with the right button appears to work as advertised.

Comment 1 GeoffLeach 2002-12-06 00:21:49 UTC
The problem here is that after some hours from restart of the X server the mouse
(PS2, 3-button) starts transmitting a shifted button 1.  Restarting the X server
fixes the problem.  And no, the shift key is not stuck.  When the window manager
is metacity, the behavior begins after 2 or 3 hours, with sawfish, its 5 or 6.
