triple-clicking on a line selects the newline character.
hitting ctrl and -> also selects the newline.
but selecting with the mouse does not display this behaviour.
I' ve noticed that in the two former cases the cursor moves to the beginning of the following line.

I think that selecting the newline is counter-intuitive in the first place.

    Not sure what you mean here. Anyway it seems the behaviour you describe is standard for source code editors.
