Fixed in 3b69ba802bd6.

Linger mode worked before because previously the mouse handler respect the controller's browse_ setting. Then someone decided to assume browse was always false. Now browse is again set to the controller's setting.

Crab added a command_disabler to linger mode. This fixes this bug, but raises the question of why linger mode worked before. He suspects this was a bug itself and that it was accidentally fixed at some point.

My previous bisect got the wrong commit because incompatible preferences files rendered my attempts to move units ineffective.

The actual commit is 7e46df919167c6906d7a782b8f77104444cdee5a, which is the one in which the new control scheme was introduced.

...which should not be possible. Furthermore, if you attack another unit (which is also allowed), the game quits to the title screen.
