I just checked and i was right, the behavior which is supposed to be
"smart" is the default behavior in all other applications i tried
(starting from Firefox and Thunderbird to KDevelop). So IMO this should
be default behavior in Scribus also and thus theres no need for an
option to enable "smart" text selection any more. Remove it to make the
UI more easy to use!
