... this lead to the answer :) Thanks!
The behavior was almost like you said, except the word was selected
then partially de-selected, because the double-click event was
triggered twice (without a mouseup/release in between).
I hadn't previously thought it could be hardware-related since it's
working fine on Windows, but it was indeed caused by a USB hub in the
way :-/

Can someone please close the issue I registered?

Many thanks Martin and Mattias!
