It would probably ok for mouse users in this case, but indeed cause trouble on 
a tablet (though i could argue that most consumer tablets aren't precise 
enough to stumble on a few px warp... ;-P )

One could catch th selection case (in difference to pure clicking) and 
realign* the text (i.e. (un)indent it) to the mousepress position until the 
selection is done and then shift if back.

As i assume the warping would be better in the mouse case one could allow a 
global setting on this (or -if reliably accessible- pick it from the actual 
input device type)

*technically this can be achived by either simply adjustiong the cursor 
position (if the lineedit content is longer than the breadcrumb width) or (in 
addition) moving the lineedit left pos to the right (w/o visual impact as the 
lineedit itself won't paint any background) if the linedit content is shorter 
than the breadcrumb width
