It might only be a similar bug.  Here are two that are in the same general
area:

                  Patch #183 - 2003/12/26 - XFree86 4.3.99.903

     * add a limit check to ScrnTstWrapped() (XFree86 Bugzilla #981).

                     Patch #167 - 2002/8/24 - XFree86 4.2.0

     * correct limit-checking in ComputeSelect() to handle selections that
       extend  off  the visible area; rather than modify the parameters to
       TrackText(),  use  ScrollSelection()  to  update  the  highlighting
       limits. (reported by Yegappan Lakshmanan and Nelson Beebe, patch by
       Alexander V Lukyanov).
