I'm using VAX build 1418 in Visual Studio 6.

There seems to be some strange behavior with text selection using the mouse. If I select some text from right to left, and if the text selected is the same as the text just to the left of where I released the moust button, then the selection will jump to the text on the left.

For example, let's say I have the following line of text:


If I select the last 2 'b' characters starting from the right and going left, as soon as I release the mouse button, the first 2 'b' characters will be selected instead of the last 2. This happens quite frequently when selecting white space, and it sometimes causes me to delete the wrong text if I'm not paying attention...
