Is it possible select group of objects inside another objects ?
In other words: I have big rectangle which occupy many screens.
And inside this rectange there are a lot of other objects.
When I try to select some area inside this rectangle - I move
this big rectange. And cann't select. Not with Ctrl, Alt or any
other keys. "Area select" can be made if only select begin
in free area - that not belong any object.

Here's a trick that I just discovered as I was ready to tell you that
you're out of luck on this one:  Select the big rectangle, then Shift-drag
on it.  Since Shift-clicking unselects the object, the dragging becomes a
normal box-drag, which should do what you want.
