[Ipe-discuss] Precisely select symbols taken from component library

Thanks for the hint. If the entire component were highlighted in 
addition to the reference point, your suggestion were the exact right 
procedure for me.

In the proposed example three reference points are located on the very 
same place -- indicated by the red cross. So hitting space after 
selecting the intersection point, I cannot distinguish which of the 
three components is selected, as only the reference points are highlighted.
