Package: nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx
Version: 96.43.07-2
Severity: important

This problem is repeatable with 2 applications: kbarcode and korganizer.
Both applications work in the predictable way on another X server (neomagic
driver on a Thinkpad 600E).  The problem also manifests itself when attempting
to copy text from kterms, one mouse click moving forward/backward in a line
invariably selects the whole line.

On the nvidia accelerated server left mouse button click and drag has the
same effect as a left mouse button double click.  Both applications pop
up a window in the latter case, and also (incorrectly) when doing a click
and drag, making the click and drag operation impossible.  This operation
should resize fields in both applications.

To eliminate the possibility of real spurious events, xev confirms that the
correct events (not duplicated) are sent when clicking and dragging on
the xev window.  If the events are somehow doubled internally, it doesn't
show in the xev window.
