WOOHOO!  This fixes "half" the problem with Bug3148. 
Once I applied the patch, I no longer had the problem
with the effect of the mouse button being continously
pressed once I clicked on something.

However, one problem still remains.  If I select 3
items (shift + click from start item to finish item),
and I click with the left-mouse, my selection is lost
as now only 1 item is selected (the one I clicked on).
 However, if I right-click, my selection isn't lost.

It seems what *should* happen is the following:
1. you make your selection in a listview (2+ items) by
using the shiftkey + left-mouse button
2. let go of shiftkey and items are still selected
3. click on one of the highlighted items
4. selection remains intact
5. drag-drop as you wish

However, things seem to go amiss at step 3.  I can
somewhat retain the selection if I keep the shift-key
pressed throughout the process -- which is not the
norm as I should let go at step 2..

So, can someone listen (pay attention) to Vitaly and
apply the patch so at least this bug can get half-way
