Unexpected behavior with text selection

    Details

      Description

      Running helloworld.HelloSanity using http://jfx.us.oracle.com/hudson/job/8u-dev/19/ 2 issues were observed while trying to select text
      1) dragging over the text, either with touch or mouse, didn't select the text. To start a selection I had to double click (mouse) double tap (touch) on the text. Then part of it would be selected and I had to play with the arrows to extend it to catch the desired area
      2) double tap (touch) is unreliable - I guess its because it's very hard to tap twice on the same location (double click with a mouse while moving it didn't select the text)
      3) using touch was impossible to conduct triple tap to select all the text at once, did work with a mouse (probably same reason as #2)
      4) While extending the selected text using the arrows to capture the entire text the small arrow in the begging of the text was jumping between first and second character and when all the text was selected it remains in the 2nd character (see attached image)
