           Summary: REGRESSION: Dragging a selection over a single word can
                    select the entire line
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: InRadar
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: cpetersen at apple.com

With NB r17027 , I have noticed that when I drag a selection over a  word in a
line , the selection extends to the entire line. I have seen this type of
problem on several pages including http://www.apple.com/ipodnano/red/

Using Webkit Nighties, I can identify when this regression first started:
r16977. This problem didn't happen on the previous NB : r16968

1. With r17027, open "sample_selection2.html"
2. In the sentence displayed, position the cursor just after the word "Store"
and mouse down.
3. Drag the mouse (from right to left) in an attempt to create a selection over
the word "Store"
4. As you drag, notice the selection actually extends outside of the area where
you are dragging. In this case, the selection extends to the start of the line.

The selection should only apply to the area on the sentence where I'm dragging
but doesn't.
