Thanks for the answer. Actually I noticed that behaviour recently.
It is kind of inconsistent though. I have to be precise with the
mouse which defeats the purpose of double-click to select word
principle. SO my question is is there some way to modify this
behaviour ? Using advise maybe ? I found out that the
defun mouse-skip-word in mouse.el is responsible for the behaviour.
