In my nautilus (2.0.3) I see the same thing, but in the list view the
shift and control keys work "as expected" (ie: shift selects all files
inbetween the first clicked and the last, ctrl selects only those
clicked on).

Design bug?  Intended?  Seems a bit odd to have it work one way in icon
view and another in list.
