I've gotten the editor (in fluid) into modes where it won't do
text selection. Dragging the mouse and/or keyboard selection with
shift-left, shift-right, and shift-end/shift-home. The cursor moves,
but no selection is shown, and seems to act as if it's really not
selected (i.e. not just a display problem).

Unfortunately not sure the cause exactly, or how to replicate,
but citing it as something to investigate. Had to restart fluid
to get it working again.

I restarted fluid again, and played around with the code editor.

Got to replicate it quickly at one point, but the same steps didn't
repeat it.

Just before it started happening, I did a double-click-drag with the
mouse, to make a 'word' selection, and after that, it started exhibiting
the no-select behavior. But I figured out a way to recover without
restarting the app.. not sure what that was though, as I was unable
to replicate with the same steps again.

It must be some internal state variable getting into a state
it shouldn't be in.

That's all I have for now..
