I created a brand-new user.  Then, I logged in to KDE 4.2 on the openSUSE 
machine.  I was greeted with the new-user information about SUSE and KDE 
4.2.  I closed that window.

I opened konqueror, and browsed to www.google.com.
I opened konsole.
I double-clicked in the konqueror address bar to select all that text.
I clicked the konsole window.
I clicked the konqueror window.
My selection was DELETED!

So, I can confirm it is NOT one of my personal user settings.

I'm thinking I should file a bug @ bugs.kde.org.  Does anyone have any 
suggestions for what I need to include in the bug report?

I can reproduce this *perfectly*.  It happens *every* time mouse focus 
changes and I have sometime selected in an editable field.  This extends to 
the KMail compose window, so it is not *just* a QLineEdit/KLineEdit problem.
