free select--any way to disable double click auto connect?
a big problem i have on my laptop is a VERY buggy touchpad... along with the constant typing cursor jumping a few lines above while typing... sometime my touchpad acts if i click when i don't... and sometimes acts with VERY jerky movements, not responds.... there is too many to list.... I HAVE THE WORST TOUCHPAD IN THE WORLD!!!!! but the biggest hindrance that my touchpad does when using Gimp is that while free-selecting something my touchpad act up and an automatic double click occurs and then Gimp connects the select area i left off to the beginning, hence making me have to hit undo and start all over... so what i need is a way to disable the auto-connect... is it possible to disable auto-connect in Gimp???

RE: free select--any way to disable double click auto connect?
1) fix the adequate part of the equation and disable your touchpad and use a mouse (or a tablet)

2) you can work piece by piece, save bits of selection in channels, and when done aggregate them in one selection, as described in an answer here: http://gimpforums.com/thread-free-select-tool-help That way if some part of your computer acts up, you have lost only your last 5 minutes of work (selections kept in channels are saved in the XCF).
