On the default browser page, do 'Page source' to open the view source window.
Try selecting text. Selection is very slow, and there is a lot of excess
flickering while redrawing the text selected.

There is some excess redrawing that the selection code is doing for
historical reasons (working around compositor bugs) that no longer needs to
happen. We have a simple fix.

it is now just slow from unacceptably slow so i am resolving this.  Selection
slowness if noticed from now on will be fixed by solving the GetPrimaryFrame
method by Troy Chevalier when he returns

moving all "Selection and Search" bugs to new "Selection" component.  Original
"Selection and Search" component will be retired.
