Dear Mario,

you are right - that appears to be a bug. Could you just copy/paste your analysis into a Jira
issue please?

looking into the implementation, since the JavaDoc isn’t very precise. I initially thought
that it would select annotations of the given type with the exact begin and end, but this
is not the case when inspecting the implementation. The problem is in CasUtil.selectAt with
the following while loop:

"if (a.getBegin() != aBegin || a.getEnd() != aEnd)" instead. This is obviously not the case,
and it does not have the same behaviour like selectCovered either, so what is the intend if
it’s not a bug?
