I have been trying to run the latest version of MacPyMOL on my new iMac with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and the latest version of OSX.  I have noticed problems trying to select residues with my mouse (either control-clicking to select or double clicking to get the menu).  I can select some residues normally, but for others, when I control-click on them, a residue in another part of the protein gets selected.  Still other residues cannot be selected at all using the mouse.   This also happens with I try to pick atoms with the mouse.  

I've seen this happen with multiple PDB files and older versions of MacPyMOL as well.    I don't have any problems selecting residues or atoms with the command line. 

This problem seems to be similar to the one that someone was having with the X11 version a couple of weeks ago.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
