I also have this problem ( Selecting table rows should be possible starting from any row, moving the mouse in any direction (i.e.: up or down), not just starting from first row down.
For motivation: I think this worked in Microsoft Work for Windows v1.2 about 25 years ago ;-)

@Telesto & all: thanks for the bug report and your other feedback!

The problem is solved by the fix for Bug 151478 (which was only selecting by using the Table menu).
