It needs to cork when there is no selection. Imagine you're working with an editable field, and want to know what is selected when nothing is selected. It would be a problem if in that one case it gave an error. Maybe that's why it was fixed in 4.6.3.

The problem case in 4.6.3 seems to be that if you put something after a line, it's smart enough to realize you mean the new text is to be before the return character. With put text after selectedline the text goes after all the contents of the line, which includes the return character.
