This problem only occurs intermittently, and I have no clue why the expected
behaviour works sometimes and not others; I can't find a distinct pattern,
although I haven't looked at it exhaustively.

To recreate this problem:

1. Open or create a presentation with at least five slides (enough so that they
don't all show up on the slidebar - try 12).
2. Click on one slide, then scroll down/up (this behaviour tends to happen more
frequenly when scrolling with the scroll bar), press and hold the shift key,
then click another. Sometimes it will select the entire range of slides, but
sometimes it will only select the most recently-selected slide.
3. Click on another slide, and keep selecting multiple slides in this way; it
doesn't necessarily have to be when you scroll. 

Again, I'm not quite sure what the difference is when it (the preferred
behaviour) does and doesn't work. Sometimes the slides quickly all highlight,
but immediately deselect, except for the current one.

Reproducible. I have made a file with 12 slides. Selecting the first slide in
slides pane and then the 11th (with Shift Click) shows the problem. It is most
likely to be seen when the firdst or last slide is in the selection. Reassigned.

My colleague also encountered this problem and came to the conclusion that
OpenImpress is not suitable for her. In my opinion this is a real usability issue.

Reset assigne to the default "".
