I've been looking at this a bit, and I think all that's needed is to
add something like
at a few places in CompletingEdit where it sets the selection (during
mouse event handling). I guess normally QTextEdit would do this
internally, but in some cases the TeXworks subclass overrides the
QTextEdit handling and ends up setting the selection itself.
I expect I'll commit a fix for this soon...
