Functional Test Case

The lower level method CKEDITOR.dom.document.getSelection is working in this sense.

It fails only with a clean cache. If you them reload the test page (F5), it passes.

The workaround for it is delaying the execution of getSelection, by placing it inside a setTimeout( function(){ ... }, 0 ) call.
