when i double-click on a word in list or table, it brings up properties dialog.
this should only occur if i double-click just outside of the word (compare with
bug 105984).

1. open a compose window.
2. create a list or table and type several words one a line (for a list) or
withing a table cell.
3. move mouse pointer so that it's right over a word (not on the edge, or
outside --just to be unambiguous).
4. double-click the mouse.

expected: word should become selected, and that's it.

actual results: word is selected, but the corresponding properties dialog
appears as well.

seems like a regression. will try to narrow down...

looks like this regressed btwn 2/14 (works fine) and 2/15 (broken). then again,
with 2/15, that's were dbl-click selected a line instead of a word (another bug).

Related to bug 193689 ?  The odd thing is that jkeiser tested the dbl-click of
word in a list scenario (if I read that bug correctly)...

yeah, that's extremely odd; I remember this being an issue particularly and I
remember fixing it.

Please make sure this gets fixed. I'm going to start using another HTML editor
till it is :-( I never knew how much I double clicked words before I ran into
this bug.

I was also doing some editing recently and this was unbearable.

doh!  What with all the branches and trunks and patches, I missed checking in
the second patch for bug 193689.  I'll ask for approval for that one.
Depends on: 193689
