Disappearing text

I haven't seen your problem but it seems odd that you can select a 
paragraph. Is this just a long line that has wrapped? I think these list 
fields work best with Don't wrap turned on, so that each clickable chunk 
is on a separate line.

This may not be what you want, but it might be a good diagnostic test 
for you.
