Re: eeschema rubber-band behavior change
It’s more likely a difference in selection than tab vs. G. Eeschema now supports stingy and hungry selections. If you drag from the left to the right then only fully-selected objects will be included (this is the 5.1 behaviour). However, if you drag from the right to the left then even partially-selected objects will be included. So if you made the selection in “selecting.png” from right-to-left then you also selected the two horizontal wires and the G command then dragged them as well.
It should get what you expect if you either drag from left-to-right or drag to just include the resistor and part of each vertical wire.

The resistor is moved as expected, but all the wires are rubber-banded, including the ones connected to the left-most and center resistors. That seems like the wrong behavior. I don't know if this is intentional or a bug.
