Shift-DownArrow selects dash on next list item

  2. Position cursor at the far left of the first list item

Expected result

Only the one line selected

Actual result

The one line selected as expected, but it also selects the “-” or “*” character at the beginning of the next line:

Thanks. It just occurred to me to check the other direction (Shift-UpArrow), and it selects everything on the previous line, except the hyphen/asterisk. So, both ways, the cursor and the edge of the selection ends up one character too far to the right.
