Review request for Plasma.


If the view is arranged (i.e. m_layoutBroken is false), the icons between the previous and the current click are selected linearly. If the view is broken, the icons which are in the rectangular region of the previous and currently selected icon, are selected. This is because when the view is broken, there is no 'linearity' as such.
A minor change to key functionality - If more than one icon is selected when a key is pressed (so we need to deselect those), then it needs to repaint the whole visible area. It could have iterated over all selected icons and repaint them, but the previous approach looks simpler. I'm not sure which of these is faster though, some hints please ..

This addresses bug 189359.

Tested on current trunk build. Works fine.
