Thanks, didn't find that discussion.
The old behaviour was a helpful indicator that pressing Delete or Backspace will clear a text field as it does in a proper Win32-GUI textbox which selects all of its text when getting focused by keyboard or by code.
Even coded as "unchanged" it behaved like "selected". Still does but there is no more indication for that.

Ok, "I want it to be similar to Windows" is a reasonable argument.
