           Summary: add option to disable dangerous text-dragging
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: z.kdebugs.9.duke2 at spamgourmet.com

Version:            (using KDE 4.3.1)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

When I select text in Konsole and then want to select a subset of existing
selection instead, I have to cancel the existing selection first by clicking
somewhere, otherwise the selected text stats to be dragged.  In KDE3 clicking
elsewhere was not necessary -- the selection was started anew.

I wish there was an option to disable editing by text-dragging, I find it
useless (the selection was already put it in the clipboard!) and can be
potentially disastrous for someone who isn't used to it, because dropping a
multiline selection into konsole (when you only wanted to select its subset)
will immediately execute everything but the last line as a command!

A global option to disable this in KDE would be even better, but I'm filing
this against konsole where it can be not only annoying, but also dangerous. 
Even MS Word has an option to disable this ever since I used it.
