Yet it works fine in Windows Explorer or OS/X Finder.

Come on, this is hardly convenient. Generally in a large dir (like a 
distribution repository), I use the listview mode, and select files with 
ctrl/shift. The *good* thing is that single-clicking on a file clears 
the current selection, which is consistent with general listview 
behavior, rather than opening it. So when I have another selection to 
make, I don't have to worry about previously selected files.

Anyway, this has already been debated to death, to enough of this.
