Have you LUA installed on your machine? Did configure find it? Does it
present in config.h (here must be #define HAVE_LUA line, or like it)?

It's a quick hack, currently it is possible to select only logical parts
of text (it is connected with internal representation of rendered page,
you can select or not only whole text of g_object_text... Current behavior
is as follows (at least for me...) - you press left button, drag it
pressed over all text elements you want to select. These text will stay
inverted while you drag the mouse, and thet it will return to original
look, and in this moment text is copied to clipboard. In reply to your
previous post - configuration for clipboard encoding is in "Misc. Options"
submenu, near bookmark file encoding configuration. Selection (in such
castrated form ;-)) works for me, at least when I paste it into text
editor. And what about the search... As I've  just discovered Ludvik
Tezar's patch has a big troubles with pasting of non-latin symbols into
links ;-((. For English text 'copy-paste-back-and-search' seems to work

I can't say anything about - didn't even look into  these parts of links
