Bug#611160: Mouse selection on Scilab console doesn't always highlight text

Package: scilab
Version: 5.2.2-9
Severity: minor

 In Scilab console, right after launch, selecting the text does the highlight.
However, if I select anything on the input line, it will not do any
highlight anymore above.
But it will still highlight on the input line.
 Copy-and-paste by mouse still works, so it's just a visual problem.
I get identical behaviour with the version built from source.

 The problem was not present in Scilab 4.
