Summary0005006: Presseing shift-LMB select - is selecting mutltiple back ground items
DescriptionWhen I am shift-selecting surfaces, worldspawn or objects in orthoview DR will semi-regularly select a bunch of items in the background all the way to the edge of the map.

The amount of times I have come back to work in DR and found whole swathes of brushes with the same textures, or lights with the same shader.

Steps To ReproduceI have tried 3 different mice and 2 different keyboards (shift key) and the issue is worse when using a steel series mouse (£40) than compared to a cheap logitec M100 mouse (£10).

It looks like DR or myself are somehow drag selecting, but I am not seeing a selection reticule. I don't believe this issue effected the older pre-widgets versions of DR?

Would it help if I made a video of this behavior..?

If you don't mind, a video might be helpful. I've never seen such behaviour.

While making the small example video, I noticed another issue (which I have filed another tracker for)

At the start of the video I am holding the shift key and then left clicking on various brushes in camera view, and you can see each of the two times I was able to reproduce it - you can see a load of background items get selected.

Added a note to my other bug report, which may provide insights on whats effecting both bugs -
