            Bug ID: 344156
           Summary: Use digiKam with your keyboard, delete the wrong
           Product: digikam
           Version: 4.7.0
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: bugs at londonlight.org

This was reported by others and by myself in some other issue long ago. I can't
find the issue but it is still very valid.

You have a bunch of photos. Select one with the mouse, then use the keyboard
from now on.
Delete a bunch of photos. The selectin box lands on some photo. You decide you
want to delete this photo and the next one, so you hold shift and click the
right arrow, then click delete. You'd think that would work, but no. What
actually happens is that now a whole bunch of photos are selected which you had
no intention of selecting, and if you're a fast computer user you may have hit
[delete] before you realize digiKam's image selection is bugged and you're
deleting your good shots.

In this video the selection box was on 17. Image 13 is to the left of it. I
clicked shift+left and instead of having 17 and 13 selected, I ended up having
13-20 selected. 
Again the same story near the end of the video when focus was on 04. I clicked
shift+right, and instead of selecting 04 and 05, it selected 01-07... If you're
a fast keyboard ninja, you better also be a file recovery ninja.

Reproducible: Always
