Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Hi. most apps select the whole word you're over when you double-click, and then let you drag the mouse to select additional text. Evolution 2.8, however, seems to give a bug where you can double-click and the whole word gets selected, but then if you drag the mouse you see how selected text starts where you first placed the cursor (i.e. in the middle of the word) and not in the beginning of the word like it should.
