word selection problems using less



If I have a file name, say, that wraps at the end of the line, then
using 
 ls -alt
I can double click the file to select it, but if I use
 ls -alt | less
then a double click only selects to the end of the line.


Can anybody enlighten me as to why this is and how I can amend the
behaviour to what I would expect (ie less doesn't affect click
selection)? I've noticed this in gnome-terminal on FC7 & Debian.

Thanks, Michael
