[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#799982: xfwm4: multiselection using ctrl+click or shift+click not possible within vncviewer window

Package: xfwm4
Version: 4.10.1-3
Severity: normal


running xfwm4 and vncviewer, since the Jessie release I'm no longer able to do
multi-selections using CTRL+click or SHIFT+click in an application within the
vncviewer window.

Expected behaviour: multiple items selected (contiguous in case of SHIFT+click)

Actual behaviour: only the clicked item is selected, undoing any previous
selection; however CTRL+[cursor] works for e.g. word-by-word movement in a mousepad
controlled via vncviewer, also multi-selections via keyboard (CTLR+[cursor],
space) are possible.

This is reproducible both with xvnc4viewer and xtightvncviewer against Jessie's
vnc4server and the current windows vncserver.

git-bisecting xfwm4 revealed commit d30cd2fb8a2303ed93dd4d0e5d73bfb337541f59 at
[1] to be the culprit, so xfwm4's current master is still affected.

I also filed a bug with upstream at [2].

Let me know, if you need more info.
