Yes, you are right. I just want to know exactly if he had the same issue like the one that I found.

Here is my scenario to reproduce the text selection problem:
- browse a table
- make a selection in some text inside the table interface and notice that the text can be selected
- click on one of the checkboxes in the table rows
- now, try to make a text selection again and notice that the text cannot be selected anymore
