#139 selecting path only works when default terminal options


First... Congratulations. Very nice application. By far best terminal emulator on Linux (and in any other OS, by the way).

This is the Issue:
Double click can be usually used to select complete paths or phrases in the content shown by terminal. In the case or PAC, this works the same way until one check the box "Use these personal options" on the "PAC edit connection" window. Then double clicks only select words, which is not preferred behavior (at least in my opinion). But what bother me most is the issue that I didn't choose the change of behavior.

    I have the same Issue in 4.5.5 and found out that the '-' in the select-by-word section is not escaped with a '\'.
    Furthermore in PACTerminal.pm the codeline for setting those pattern to the terminal is twice for the defaultsettings (line 3293 and 3296) and not existing in section for personal settings (lines 3271-3283).
    I didn't know if this is a bug or a feature but I moved one of the doublicated lines to the personal settings section and now it works as expected on defaultsettings AND on personal settings.
