Possible scrolling/double-click bug

    My apologies if this has already been raised (I did a forum search but didn't see a match).

    I'm seeing what might be a bug when you scroll the console2 window back and try to double-click to select some text.  What I find is that console2 is acting on the first click and popping the scrollbar down to the bottom.  Here's how to reproduce:  issue a command that produces more than a screenfull of output.  Scroll back a bit using the scrollbar.  Attempt to select some text by double-clicking on it.  For me the window immediately scrolls to the bottom on receiving the first click, then processes the usual double-click action on receiving the second click.  The result is that the scroll position has been changed BEFORE the double-click action is performed and the result is that the wrong text gets selected.

    For reference, I have "copy on select" set to OFF, if that matters.

    Could this behavior be the result of a setting I've missed?

    unfortunately, I could not reproduce the behaviour.
    Can you post your XML file? I'm actually wondering what do you have in Console Settings > Behavior, Mouse, and Hotkeys (scrolling-related keys).

    Mentioning of the OS and the version of Console (including bitness for both) might be useful too.

    Thanks for the response.  Sorry for the delay, I guess I forgot to select "monitor this" and missed your post.  The XML is below.  The machine is Windows XP 32 bit and console is the latest version.  Since last posting I found that the behavior doesn't exhibit when using cmd.exe as a shell.  The shell where I'm seeing the issue is bash (via Cygwin) so perhaps this isn't a problem with console2.  Though for the life of me I can't see what difference the shell would make.  If you have Cygwin about, try setting your shell to "c:\cygwin\bin\bash -login -i", then generate more than a screenful of output, scroll back till the cursor rolls off the bottom of the window and then either single or double click in console.  I think you will see the whole scroll buffer snap back down to the end.  For what it's worth, I'm using Cygwin 1.7.
