[10 II] Selecting text in PDFs is hit-and-miss

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 50-90%
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 4.1.0.24
HARDWARE (XA2, X10, X10 II, …): 10 II
UI LANGUAGE: Swedish
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): seems device related

DESCRIPTION:

50+% of the time the text selection doesn’t activate on press-and hold on my Xperia 10 II.
I have 100% success on my 10 (I). Does not seem to be any difference between documents.

It is if the wiggle-room is much much smaller on the 10 II (but i’m still nowhere near activating the scroll).
Using the tip of my finger instead of the front seems to yield slightly better results.

PRECONDITIONS:

Have a 10 II and a PDF file

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Open PDF
  2. Press-and-hold to try to enter selection mode

EXPECTED RESULT:

Selection activates

ACTUAL RESULT:

Selection does not activate

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

I tried increasing PDF.Selection { wiggle } to Theme.itemSizeSmall from Theme.itemSizeSmall / 2, but it yielded no change in behaviour.
