I've noticed this in kmail, but I subconsciously started moving the mouse up 
slightly at the beginning of the line - this causes kmail to select the line 
as expected.

It does not occur in the message composition window (such as this). It does 
occur in message previews and message windows, whether GPG signed or not. If 
you try this on a GPG signed message, you can see that the 'trip-point' is 
the left edge of the GPG marked/coloured box. (My view is set to 'Fancy').

Debian testing/unstable. KDE 3.0.4-1 from kde.org.
