If mrxvt.tripleclickwords is set to true then one
cannot triple-click and drag downwards to select
multiple lines of text. One can still drag upwards,
but personally I find this counterintuitive.

The behavior I would expect is that triple clicking
would select from the clicked word to the end-of-line,
then dragging downwards would select subsequent whole
lines, but the newline at the end of the last line
would NOT be selected. So for example, if the user
triple-clicked on the word "no" in this paragraph and
dragged down one line then middle-clicked:

He's no fun,
he fell
right over

he would end up with this:

no fun,
he fell|

Where the pipe | is the cursor.

Thanks!
