When trying to select features in layer A that intersect features in layer B, the tool "Select by Location" (from menu "Vector / Research Tools") does not work in one particular case : when a feature in layer B is completely within a feature in layer A. The checkbox "Include input features completely within the selection features" has no effect. (see test layers attached)
This was working in QGIS 2.4 but not since 2.6...
This is working fine via the processing menu in 2.4, 2.6 and master.
Fix #12154 - select by location not working when A covers B
The combination of touches+overlaps+contains is not enough if input layer
(where selection should be done) is completely within selection layer.
I have reintroduced "intersects" predicate and made it default.
The processing toolbox has an improved (fixed?) version but fTools
were not adapted at the same time
