If it fixes the copy/pasting of white space, sounds great.

However, in terms of the click handling, I'd like to refer to my earlier 


" I don't like that the screen jumps when you select something. I like 
to select where I'm reading so I don't lose track, and this heavily 
interferes with that. It would be better if only clicking on the line 
number would change the target."

I think the way Alexander implemented the click handler after that was nice.
