xterm-211 (which finally fixes the xterm scrollbar problems) no longer allows words to be selected by double-clicking them.
(Previously, double-clicking on a character would select everything to the left and right up to the first space character - but not the entire area must be drag-selected).
This might be an app-defaults change.
Can double-click-to-select be enabled on xterm 211?
Works perferctly fine here, so - how about you fix your config instead of filing a bug?
Well, I wouldn't have gone to the effort of filing a bug if I knew what the answer was or *how* to fix my config!
In the end, I discovered that the lines:
! Here is a pattern that is useful for double-clicking on a URL:
!*on2Clicks: regex [[:alpha:]]+://([[:alnum:]!#+,./=?@~-]|(%[[:xdigit:]][[:xdigit:]]))+
... in app-defaults/XTerm actually disables double-clicking in the general sense if uncommented.
This is non-obivous, and could well lead to further bugs being filed...
I suggest that either a comment be added to this effect, or these lines be removed from the XTerm file.

Those lines are commented out by default...
