If you are drawing with the paintbrush tool the edges are drawn soft or 
"fuzzy"and the color selection tools will fail to select portions of the 
softened edges as blending to soften the edges brings the color closer to the 
colors of the neighborhood versus the color you are trying to select.  You can 
try increasing the threshold setting of the fuzzy select and color select 
tools, or paint your lines with the pencil tool rather than the paintbrush 
which guarantees a hard, solid, non-blended edge that the color select tool can 
select without loss.  The select tools also have their own antialiasing feautre 
which should be turned off if exact selections are needed.
