[Bf-committers] More editmode problems

As I've now ported the new editmesh stuff (still think it's incredible) to
instinctive2, I'll be pestering the list with problem reports ;)

I know this is work in progress, I'm just providing pointers to possible
problems that could be forgotten.

1) It is possible to select edges in face mode by using the
    ALT-B (edgeloop select) function. Nothing will indicate that
    an edge loop is selected, but grabbing will result in it being

2) Both faceloop tools (SHIFT/CTRL-R) do not respect the
    zbuffered selection mode and instead also select occluded
    loops (in contrast to ALT-B, which works correctly)

3) Apart from this, all the loop functions (ALT-B, SHIFT/CTRL-R)
    are badly implemented in that they use 100% CPU even while not
    moving the mouse. They should be event-driven, like transform()
    appearently is, as it doesn't use CPU while not moving the mouse.

That's all for now :)
