Description Henning Mersch 2009-07-21 20:59:35 CEST
Selecting multiple mails (e.g. for drag/dopping them to another folder), 
the Summary View aka Message list is used. 
Claws behaves a bit strange, if a combination of mouse and keyboard is 
used for navigation. Claws ends up in selecting mails, which arent expected to be selected. 

How to reproduce: 
Lets assume one selects a mail (lets name it A) in "Summary view" by mouse and afterwards uses arrow keys to move around to another mail (name B).
If shift-Mouse on a third mail (name C) is used, claws selects mails from
A to C.

I would expect mails from B to C to be selected, because B
is marked and A isnt marked in any way. 

I asked for comments on this at the users mailinglist:

I use Ubuntu ppa packages on x86.
This is not new in 3.7.2 - I think it exists since ages, but I 
havent investigated this "strange" behaviour until now.

It is also a problem when you click one mail (Windows 7 in my case), then press shift and cursor down 2 times (selecting in total 3 mails). It is normally expected that if you release the shift key and click another mail, then the other mail should be selected and the original 3 selected mails should be deselected. What actually happs is, that the older 3 are still colored but not really selected. One has to ctrl+click them all 3 to get rid of the marker.
