Ok, no problem, but before I do that maybe it is worth mentioning the  
following, in case it matters.

I have all the dependencies required to compile/install MD installed  
through MacPorts (as described in http://www.naiznoiz.share-a-book.com/?p=27) 
, but I did not install the gtksourceview package(s), as MD seems to  
run without it. Until a while ago, MD reported that this package was  
not installed during the configuration step, but recently this does  
not happen anymore, so I assume it is not a requirement. Is this true?  
Could this be related?

Thanks for pointing the location of the file with the typo. I changed  
this in my local checkout, and the warning is gone. But indeed, it  
does not solve the selection problem. So if the above is unrelated as  
well, I'll file a bug report.

FYI, I thought that maybe the cause was that Lucida Grande is not a  
monospace font (I'm not a font expert, but I guess I'm right), so I  
changed to Courier New, in the preferences, and the problem remains as
