Bug Description

What is the logic behind this :

I can't break a track if it is selected with the "arrow" tool, but I can break it if the Route Tracks Tool is used to select it. On the other hand, I can drag tracks (45 deg or free angle) in both cases !

Why such a difference ? It doesn't make sense. Break track should be enabled with the arrow tool as well.
