Summary0004272: Sketcher object selection detection is flickering

The summary should say it all (if the sentence makes any sense).
If not, forum post with gifs:

I think its severe because it is a basic feature not working and causing major headache for me as a newbie (if unnoticed I will keep creating new nodes which I have no idea how to conveniently identify later).
But I am filing this as minor in the hopes someone experienced can adjust this accordingly if it has to.
Steps To Reproduce1) Install any version of freecad (I have tested with self-compiled snapshot, 0.18, 0.17, 0.16.)
2) Ideally set the pick radius in the options to something high like 50px. It will help reproduce it without getting hand cramps but the issue will occur regardless of the setting.
3) Create sketch
4) Select a tool
5) Move towards a point and inside its pick radius.
6) Move around staying inside the pick radius
7) Notice selection flickering

Sketcher: Make setposition text unpickable


fixes 0004272

The setposition text string was being picked interfering with preselection of autoconstraints.

Merit for the solution goes to Werner:
