 Unfortunately if I switch 'follow host mouse' off things either don't work 
or are very strange on my normal platform, Linux.

  What is strange is that the the selection system seems to work in all 
other packages I have tried, e.g. draw. The only other lead I have is that 
I also seem to have some issues with keyboard input, in particular hotkeys, 
when using a external usb keyboard to my laptop with ProCAD. Originally I 
thought it was due to the slowness of a wireless keyboard I used to have. I 
changed it to a wired keyboard and it is alot better, but not always 
perfect. It feels as though there is a race or ProCAD is not getting the 
response quickly enough.
