Try selecting a big polygon in a attached shapefile with the first selection tool. Big polygon cannot be selected, while smaller ones are selected alright.
Rings and self-intersection error are present in the big polygon, not sure if this is related though.

I can get it to work for all of the select tools on this dataset.
I suspect the problem dr is having is the selection tools now use contains rather than intersects by default. Maybe the best solution is to make intersects the default method for all selection tools. Then provide an option to change it to contains if the user prefers.
