Thanks for noticing this. I just looked at the bug report:

Details: The column reorder-patch breaks or complicates the selection the text of a column in FF5, especially for (smaller) id columns.

In my test, I cannot reproduce this after reordering some columns. The bug only happen after shift+click to select some rows in a table. This is a known disadvantage of enabling shift+click (I've stated this in when we were discussing to enable shift+click feature). Should we change it?

Another way to keep the shift+click feature and text-selection work together: use javascript to clear selection after shift+click, but it makes the screen flickering for a while. You may try this in "clear_selection" branch in my git.
