If I have an editor split into two windows and select text in one of them, then move the mouse over to the other (without clicking) the highlight spreads to include everything between the selected text and a location in the other window. This seems to be triggered by using the 'mouse selection creates clipboard' option and pasting with middle-click. Once that's been done, the highlight of new selections will spread to include the line below the last paste, if the mouse moves into that window even if the location is not currently visible.

I don't see this on Linux.
