Short description of error
Selection of overlapped objects will fail if the cursor has been moved.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
In a a row of objects, position the view is such a way that them got occluded, then try to select the object underneath.
It should select the next occluded object at each click and cycling back, and that happens unless you don't click at the exact same pixel all time.

But there's a problem :
We all know that's impossible to not move the pen while clicking with it so, it will require cirurgical precision to select with the graphic pen, and it's not the point if a graphic pen.

Thanks for the report, but that is not a bug, that’s a limitation related to a specific input device… Also, I’m assuming you are aware of the ALT-RCLICK that pops up a menu to select any object below the click?

I an aware of the alt click and also aware that this is a downgrade compared to 2.7 and shoud be fixed since before it worked fine.

Alt+click has a negative side: when you have lots of objects and dont have time to name everything the alt+click menu just become a messy list that is even harder to use.
