I found this one completely by chance. I am working on the ancestry of my Icelandic grandmother and so I'm dealing with a variety of variant characters that didn't come up in previous work (although my other grandmother is Norwegian/Swedish, so there will be more). I was in the properties of one Þóra Öskarsdóttir to copy the first name and when I double-clicked to select the name, the Ö following was also selected. I repeated the selection several more times in other individuals with similar last names, and got the same result every time the first letter was an accented vowel (although I didn't test lower-case, as everything with accents are names and so the first letter is always capitalized, at least in what I'm working with). I then tested the entire range of accented capital vowels in an individual's comments field, and the error was reproduced every time. I repeated the test in Notepad, WordPad, and OpenOffice Writer, and behaviour was as expected; the space was recognized as the delimiter of the selection. Hopefully others can reproduce this behaviour and confirm.

I just realized that I didn't correct my post title before posting; it's definitely more than one character, as already noted.

It gets more interesting, though. I just tested the few special-case consonants that exist, just to be thorough (but note that I didn't test anything past Unicode U+00FF). The Ð (capital eth) and Þ (capital thorn) are not affected, but the Ñ (capital N with tilde) is affected. My first thought was that it had something to do with combining a character and an accent mark, but as noted in the original post, the Ø is affected as well. Strange.
