You might want to consider switching to an older revision (probably
installing it besides the most recent one) where the old rect select
tool is still available.
You are experiencing what happens if developers really mean "development

software is partially or totally broken and this is intended. Simply
keep a last "works for me" version and use it if things get screwed up.
