612 - Double click with full row selection

Hello,

in last version (612) I noticed that with the option "full row select" active, double click on a row is not working, and I have to double click on the file name.
Actually, double clicking on a row is "ignored", unless double click happens on the file name; pressing "enter" works anyhow.

Thanks for your great work!

I don't remember -- is this different than in previous versions? That is, did a double-click work anywhere in a row before 612?

Click-and-drag requires a click ON the file name, even with full-row select enabled (see for example viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4211#p14916 and possibly viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2942#p14940).

This raises two questions:
1. Are clicks supposed to work anywhere in a row if full-row select is enabled?
2. If not, what is the benefit of full-row select?

But if yes, then click in full-row select isn't working.

A number of posters (including myself) are surprised at this, so it would be good to know what the proper function of full-row select is. Can anyone explain? Thanks.

I'm (quite) sure it was different in previous versions. I always liked full row selection, and I would have noticed this.

yes, it definitely works in versions up to .611

.612 has problems with 'full row select' and it has problems with 'hot track' in full rows when 'theme off' is ticked - I mention the hot-track thing here, as to my (very modest) understanding this seems to be a related problem.
