Description

I'm seeing this in current trunk build on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Steps to reproduce:
- Go to http://aanbieding.marktplaats.nl/hoe-werkt-het/contact/
- Long tap on the textare field

Expected result:
- Context menu shows up

Actual result:
- Text selection UI shows up, selecting the top image for some reason

I tried to come up with a testcase, but I failed thus far:

(something dynamic is going on, that makes it hard to minimize)

We only show text selection UI when there is no context menu to show:

So this sounds more like a problem getting the context menu to show up. Does this happen in aurora?

Yeah, I don't get a context menu to show up in Aurora, so the problem is not related to the text selection UI, I guess.
