To reproduce: load the tinderbox sidebar and try selecting text.

For selection in the sidebar to be useful, we'd probably also need a context 
menu (bug 52008).

Interestingly, you /can/ select text in the "What's Related" sidebar and use 
Ctrl-C to copy.  

Strange: when you copy out a block containing images and then paste into 
notepad, the sidebar images end up as <images/poweredbyalexa_clear.gif> whereas 
images in webpages are stripped out.

Reassigning 50 Sidebar bugs to Matt.  I was told this was going to be done 
shortly about two months ago, but it clearly hasn't been.  I think that's long 
enough for all these bugs to remain assigned to nobody.

Feel free to filter all this spam into the trashcan by looking for this string 
in the message body: ducksgoquack

My own sidebar also displays the "unable to select text in sidebar" bug in
2000112204.  It also seems to affect text outside tables, not just text in tables.
