      Description

      ros trunk r75637 gcc dbg:

      When selecting multiple files while holding ctrl the system should change the selection on LBUTTONUP, but it erroneously changes the multi-selection already on LBUTTONDOWN.

      This leads to very unintuitive follow-up errors like the following sequence:
      select 3 files with left mouse button (while holding ctrl)
      make sure no mouse button is pressed anymore and ctrl is released
      now press-n-hold ctrl again (with the aim to enforce copy in next step)
      when trying to start the drag-operation by left-mouse-button-click-n-hold we will erroneously deselect the file where we "grabbed the multi-selection"

      (This does not happen when you just start to drag (without holding ctrl).)

      If we'd change multi-selections properly on LBUTTONUP instead LBUTTONDOWN (like W2K3 does), there wouldn't be any problem.
