0005074: Mouse click while designating sets mark like enter does
When using the mouse and mouse buttons to designate small areas for mining, the mark for designating an area got set under the X-cursor (and not the mouse cursor) just as enter would have done it.

I don't know if additional clicks confirm (designates) the area, as pressing enter again would have done, but I don't think so.
No tags attached.

Happens to me too, although clicking at a tile further away does not designate the whole area, just the tile clicked.

I can reproduce something like this:
1) designate something with mouse
2) right-click to move X cursor to mouse
3) former position of cursor is now blinking, pressing Enter results in rectangular designation

Yes, it's the blinking that I'm talking about, although I moved the X-cursor with the arrow buttons. I never tested if pressing enter afterwards would cause the area to be designated, but I assume that it would.

Okay, that should do it.
