Description:
when drawing a selection rectangle on canvas, connection objects get selected as soon as the selection intersects the bounding box of the selection line, even if the connection line itself is not yet in range of  the selection-rectangle.
this gets annoying very quickly on crowded models

How to repeat:
open attached model and try to select the select_meX tables by dragging selection rectangles from around the red spots towards the tables.
see that the connections highlight too as soon as the selection rectangle intersects the bouding box of connection.

Suggested fix:
"finer" calculation of selection in rubber-band-mode
