I only noticed this bug when 'Smart Guides' was turned on.
I usually don't use smart guides as AI's snap is so inaccurate I've learned not to assume just because the app is indicating that a snap is made (after trying multiple snap/selection tolerance settings), on closer inspection, so called snapped points are miles off. The only way is to work at maximum zoom.
Illustrator 8 was the last version that had accurate snap: over 20 years ago. Probably the one of the basic time saving functions a vector app needs to get right (along with accurate selection tools).
It's like bring out a new car with all new bells and whistles every year, but without fixing a steering problem that keeps taking you in the wrong direction. I just don't understand Adobe's thinking, or lack of it.
Back to the point: Switch off Smart Guides and the selection of lines is then no longer locked.
And don't use NotsoSmart Guides.
