OS X 10.6.8, Radeon X1900
Broken 2.72 Hash:95182d1
Worked with all versions from 2.63-2.71
Short description of error
Cannot select objects in object mode in wireframe view. All object types (I think) are affected, mesh, lamps, curves, etc. Can select all these objects in shaded, textured and rendered views. Can select vertices, edges and faces in wireframe view in edit mode.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
This error is reproducible in every .blend I have opened, including factory reset.
1:Load factory settings.
2:Go into wireframe view.
3:Try to select objects.
Additional info: I recently made this machine dual boot into Windows 7, and experienced this problem in Blender 2.71 and 2.72 (the only Blender versions for Win I have) under Win7, along with other problems, and thought that this was a graphics card driver issue as these problems only occurred under Win7, however after downloading 2.72 for OS X, I have experienced this (wireframe select problem only) with OS X. I posted a query on Blender Stack Exchange to find a quick fix to no avail. Someone with username Brecht commented on this (was it Brecht?) to say it was a driver issue, but was mainly commenting on a cycles problem. This cannot be the issue under OS X as it always worked in versions from 2.71 backwards. That page has been closed, but a screen capture is here.)
Open question - should I have submitted the cycles problems found in the link as a bug?
