Try to select first word on any paragraph on slashdot.org, keep left mouse button pressed and slowly move the pointer as you read. You'll notice that from one point selection does not follow the pointer (though still mouse button is pressed down and moving). Really annoying, if you ask me. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. click anywhere in any text on any page (that contains some text of course) 2. drag the mouse as if you were to select the text Actual Results: selecting stops after approximately 1 second Expected Results: keep selecting text worked fine ~3 weeks ago (AFAIK). does not happen in email messages. this is already 3rd build and 2nd PC I experience this on. workaround: move to the ending point of selection and hold Shift, then click.
After doing some investigation, I've found the source of the problem: believe it or not but it's "titlebar info 1.43 (gen_tbar_2.dll)" from WinAmp. It does refresh title of window every second so that's why there's the 1 second 'lag'.
