Re: Toolbar redraw causes unwanted selection

I just did M-x idlwave-mode in an empty buffer.  If that's not enough
to make the extra icons appear, that's why I didn't see them.

Right, the icons appear only if the shell is running (which won't work without IDL installed). Sorry for the confusion. I have received numerous reports from users annoyed with the toolbar behavior, and have typically just instructed them how to disable to toolbar altogether.

Regarding the original spurious selection bug, I tried out your fix, and it does indeed defeat the selection when toolbar size changes. However, I noticed two issues with the implementation:

1. When you click to switch to another window within the frame, and the toolbar height changes, the point moves to the location of the cursor *after* the text is shifted. Ideally, the point would be placed exactly where the user clicks (i.e. the click location before the toolbar resize occurs).

2. Clicking to drag a selection is now defeated when toolbar size changes. Normally, if the focus is in a given window, click-dragging in another window in the frame immediately begins defining a selection. With your fix in place, for windows with different toolbar heights, no selection is created when dragging in this manner (you must first give that window focus).
