Indeed, when I tested now, I observed that when merely moving the cursor, 
Chrome uses visual cursor motion, but when selecting text it switches to using 
logical cursor motion.  I'm not sure what is more confusing, logical cursor 
motion when moving, or changing behaviour when selecting text, but definitely 
you need to use logical motion when selecting text.
