[Lazarus] Change in source editor behaviour ?

Sorry about the noise.

By searching the keyboard shortcuts I found

'line selection mode',

which was mapped to CTRL-K, L. 
AFAIK this combination was previously mapped (in my settings) 
to 'select current line'. (to verify, I checked the settings 
in 'joe', which is configured using the same keys as Lazarus...)

I seem to have activated this inadvertently after the update ?

Strange. Once more, sorry about the noise.

Always happens. 
After you send a mail, you stumble on the solution of the problem...
