Double-click to select word not working

today I upgraded a friend's machine to 14.04. When I wanted to do some
jobs in a terminal I noticed that I couldn't select filenames by double-
clicking those names. And selecting an entire line by triple-clicking
didn't work either. I was a bit puzzled because this feature works on
all the other *Ubuntu machines I know. Further experiments showed that
it is not limited to the terminal but doesn't work for any application.
My friend told me that this feature had never worked before.
Is there a config file which determines if double-click to select words
can be switched off?
