Hi Steven,

You need to hold down the shift key in a mouse-aware application to
select text.  Otherwise Konsole sends mouse drag 'events' to the
application itself.  midnight-commander does not use these but other
applications such as Vim do.  Under KDE 3 Konsole did not support
mouse dragging in applications.
