[bug #19651] x selection in editor

Follow-up Comment #3, bug #19651 (project mc):

i dont like the idea of changing the terminal just because a application
misbehaves. my workarround for several years is to cat the current file -
hopefully it's not a 60M log...

therefore created a patch (that only works for slang and mc 4.6.1) that uses
a clear eol function to perform the action of clearing the rest of the
current line.
selection works fine for me now, but the display flickers on movement -
something i can handle

@pavel: did you even read the post? the solution was in it - i hope in future
we can improve understanding!

to make it work as described i had to create a new function in color.c&h that
resets the color index 0. if anything simmilar exists please adopt the idea.

i dont care if this ever ends up in the main tree - it would save me the
trouble of patching. once a year..

gentoo ebuild with use flag in testing phase maybe apears in sunrise overlay
