ALG->david_juergens: Thanks for bringing this up, it's seems indeed a little
bit strange, but only when You know that the user implies to klick-drag.

When clicking on the blue rect there is no way to detect that the user wants to
klick-drag to select the red objects. He also may want to select the blue rect.

- Hold the Ctrl-Key when starting to select; this will do exactly what You want
- no selection and start of drag, but spawning the selection frame starts.

Please reconsider if this is what You needed. If yes, close the task
