CantSelect is false by default, and since it isn't in the project 
browser, new users are unlikely to know about it. They're also unlikely 
to dig into the Plugins menu to show the app browser, so mistakes would 
probably be rare.

But yes, it could be an issue if they did find it.

If you can reproduce that, it would be worth a bug report. The behavior 
does sound suspicious.
