           Summary: regression: rectangle selection mode doesn't work
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: exit3219 at gmail.com

Version:            (using KDE 4.2.90)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

Konsole has a very neat feature, where Ctrl+Alt+drag lets one select a
rectangle of text (instead of being restricted to selecting entire lines). 
This feature has stopped working for me in KDE 4.3beta2. I have first noticed
the problem on the alternative screen (the one used for less, vim etc.), but
now I see that it affects the normal screen as well.

The behaviour I see is as follows:
* ctrl+alt+very_fast_drag starts a rectangle select, but then it gets stuck and
stops following the mouse;
* ctrl+alt+normal_speed_drag does not start a rectangle selection at all.

In 4.2 rectangle selection was working perfectly both in the normal and in the
alternative screen.  It would be great if this feature were brought back :)
Thanks for the great work on Konsole for KDE4!
