Dear diary, on Wed, Nov 05, 2003 at 07:18:01PM CET, I got a letter,
where Jean-Yves Levesque <jyves at nortelnetworks.com> told me, that...

Wow, so the background colors are getting to such an state that people
are actually complaining about particular deficiencies, previously
undistinguishable from the total mess ;-)). Congrats, Jonas.

This bug is known and there's various funny stuff about this, but
generally the HTML engine we build upon is not quite designed for this
kind of stuff so this is still work in progress. We (Jonas) cleaned up
most of the weird behaviour already but this is an example of what is
still there.

Do you press a shift when pressing the mouse button(s)?

Certainly not before Christmas, and I guess not right after the
Christmas neither...
