#257 do not make selection on mouse hover


In single mouse click mode. When mouse hovers over the filename, a selection is made.
This should not happen. A selection should be made according to the following criteria (this was an enhancement request):


NOTE: this description applies to both single and double mouse click mode.

-left single/double mouse click (depending on the mode) on the filename only activates the application for that file (clicking anywhere else does nothing but clear the active selections).
-cntrl-click on filename selects it. (mouse click anywhere else will clear all active selections)
-cntrl-click on filename again deselects it
-cntrl-a selects all unselected items in the listing. cntrl-a again toggles actively selected items.
-continual depressed left mouse button anywhere in the listing other than the filename column will activate a graphic rectangle for multiple selections

Regarding shift-(left mouse click) on single filename:
1) If no prior selection exists
-create selection for that item.
2) If prior selection exists
-perform a selection span accordingly

The following key/mouse combination performs the same function. That is, show a reactangle and select all filenames that fall within the resulting boundary.

shift-(left mouse continually depressed)
cntrl-(left mouse continually depressed)
left mouse continually depressed
