Description Gordo 2015-02-24 00:58:29 UTC
1. Type a sentence/paragraph and hit return.
2. Type some spaces or tabs.
3. Place cursor at the end of spaces or tabs.
4. Ctrl+Shift+Left
5. If there is no period (punctuation) in the sentence of step 1 then the last word is included in the selection.  If there is a period then that is selected.

Expected behaviour:  Only spaces or tabs at beginning of sentence/paragraph should be selected.  Various other programmes behave in this manner.

I don't know what should happen in the case of spaces or tabs in the middle of a sentence.  Other programmes include the word prior to the spaces in the selection.
