Ok.  Well, the commit is rather old, and it'd take sometime for me to
clean it up.  So, I'd rather we take the chance and trust me on this
backport.  The existing code is clearly wrong, and the change to me is
no brainer.  If this is any consolation, I wrote the original code (it's
100% mine), and I'm patching my own code.  So I'd like to think that I
know what I'm doing with this change. :-)

Also, this code only gets executed during keyboard based range selection
i.e. Shift+<arrow key>.  So, it has a very limited scope.

Unless I hear otherwise from you, I'll take that you are giving me a
sign-off on this.
