Using the rectangle select tool, does not work properly. The tool selects some features inside the selected rectangle as well as selecting features outside the selection rectangle. This problem appears when a MySQL point data table is entered as a vector layer.
This is similar to other bugs reported and fixed some time ago for shape files.
This problem impacts MySQL; it does not appear to impact shape files. Selection from shape files appears to work properly

Same problem here with select attributes by a circle, on a PostGis layer.

I have a similar problem here for a shape point layer under windows 64bit QGIS 2.2 and 2.4. Only some points within a rectangle are shown as selected.

Can this be a hardware problem? Because it happens only on one PC and another one works fine.

Hello, bug triage...

I can't reproduce it on PostGIS Point layer using all the selection tools. Do you still have it ? If it is the case could you attach a data set where the bug occurs ?
