The program I usually have problems with is Mozilla, which does the
select-dragging thing -- there, you _can_ click inside the selection to
reduce it to a point, but if your click is a little sloppy and produces
some movement events between the down/up events, it thinks you're trying
to drag instead.

Actually none of the Gnome programs I tried seem to implement `selection
dragging with mouse-1' at all...
