Hi there and merry Christmas to you all,

i have a super annoying problem of which I do not even know how to name 
it ..

Some times my ubuntu 7.10 (but it was the same with former versions) on 
a dell xp15 starts to "autoselect" text.

So when I click some where and move the cursor the text gets selected.

Very annoying.

No idea what triggers this.

When that state is active, I have I have not found a way how to switch 
it off other then to reboot the laptop.

can anybody of you give me a hint, ho to handle this?


and have a good time
