The sensitive/insensitive property of objects is not actively supported at
the moment, because we plan to implement layers instead (a layer can be made
invisible and/or insensitive) and then perhaps eliminate the per-object
sensitivity. However this bug of yours seems to be easy to fix, so please
submit it to the tracker and I'll see to it when I have time.

Thanks to everyone for their responses. I went ahead and submitted a
bug, but some good points were brought up about why insensitive is not
complete. A user might not realize that they need to use the xml editor
to select their insensitive item. It would still be nice if shift-click
wouldn't select insensitive items, but maybe it is not the most
important thing right now...

I have been looking forward to the layers dialog, but I think it would
be a mistake to eliminate per-object properties like sensitivity and
opacity. I know that when I've done work in Illustrator I'm constantly
using the layers dialog to flip the visibility/sensitivity of not only
layers, but also individual items. In fact, I think that the
Illustrator layers dialog may be a good model in general for the
Inkscape layer dialog.
