present-in: 0.54

When selecting with the mouse, it might make sense for further incoming data to be buffered until the user lets go, so that they aren't trying to work with a moving target. This might also be nice when scrolling with the scrollbar.

We used to do this, but we broke it in 0.54.

Patch (needs Unix fettling): 004801c41291$340fb8e0$024d460a@neptune
