Description

18 years ago
We currently default to setting selection to on in new frames/windows. This means 
that if selection is set in a way that does not involve focus changes (e.g. by 
JavaScript, or Find, or whatever), then selection can appear on (focussed) in 
multiple frames at the same time.

We should default selection to the disabled state. We'll get a focus event if the 
user clicks in a frame, which will change the selection state to on.

target for 0.9.1.
Can we add a one line comment that explains why we default to off?  Something 
like:  "default off so we don't get multiple frames showing selection; instead 
rely on focus event" or a pointer to this bug?
