Select by location (Point on line)

Vector->Analysis->Select by Location is not working properly:

I've got a point layer (OSM Statoins) and a line layer (OSM train) and want to confirm if a station/stop is actually on the train tracks or not. Even if i edit the point layer an snap a point to a line vertex it is not recognized as a point on the line. It actually works when using the processing toolbox and use a 'select by location' with a precision of e.g 0.0001.
The snap and edit features actually have no fault, I confirmed the position of the edited points on the lines with ArcGIS and they were on the line. So the problem definitely is in the 'Select by Location' feature (or the default precision set there).

Version using: 2.12.0 - Lyon

As fTools plugin will be removed in future and same tool works fine in Processing toolbox I think we can leave this as is.

The "ftools" category is being removed from the tracker, changing the category of this ticket to "Processing/QGIS" to not leave the category orphaned.
