[PD] Newb: Problems cutting connections in edit mode

Hi - I'm attempting to join the Pure Data revolution. A major impedance is 
my inability to disconnect patch cords in edit mode. The documentation 
leads me to believe that if I mouse over a patch cord and see the hand 
change to an X, a further click will disconnect the objects / messages / 
etc. I see the X, and I click, but the cable simply turns blue 
(highlighted) and stays put stubbornly. After it turns blue, I've tried 
pressing "delete," grabbing the cable, and a number of various other things 
to no avail. I've tried both pd 0.37 and 0.38-4 under WinXP SP1 on two 
separate and very differently configured machines, with the same problem on 
all versions and hardware.  Connecting and moving objects is not a problem.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
