object highlight in nurbs

i’m trying to learn nurbs modeling, and i found what i think to be an bug. When you have several nurbs objects and when you select one, for example, it doesn’t highlight like in mesh objects. I’m using ubuntu 8.04, nvida card and i’ve compiled blender from svn. Can someone also test this, to see if it is really a bug or something with my system?

Thanks
