Can't highlight/copy from midnight commander

Launch a full-screen application that understands mouse events, such as midnight commander.
Try to highlight a piece of text for copy-pasting purpose.
In iTerm-0.10 you had to use the alt/option modifier key so that mouse events are handled by the terminal, not forwarded to the application.
In current iTerm2, alt/option highlights a rectangular area. This means that there's no way to copy-paste a couple of lines the old-fashioned row-contiguous way.
