Okay, you made me look. I can reproduce it. If you right-click on the 
object the selection handles go away. I think this is because the IDE 
needs to trap that message, both so it can handle it to update its own 
property inspectors, and so it can pass it on to plugins that use it. At 
the end of the IDE handler is a note that says not to pass the message 
or else you get duplicates.

It looks to me like it is a necessary evil.
