Error description

  • When using the outline to select a field usage where another
    field exists whose name is prefixed with the selected field's
    name and is on the same line then incorrect text may be
    selected.
    
    For example, using the code sample below when clicking on the
    usage of field 'a' in the outline will cause the 'a' of the
    field 'a1' usage to be selected.
    
         d a               s             10a
         d a1              s             10a
          /free
           a1=a;
          /end-free
    
    This problem exists for both the static and live outline views.
