accidentally select multiple

mbrandonpace says:
I tend to accidentally select multiple tasks when I intend to select one. This often leads to me completing a task I don't intend to complete!

Happens like this: I select the task using the checkbox, postpone it (such that it moves down the list off-screen), and select another task (thinking I only have one task selected).

This is user error, but does anyone else have this trouble?

Suggestions of possible solution:

A) By default, only one task is selected at a time. (Hold Ctrl for multiple?)
B) Clicking the checkbox completes the task.
C) Some visual cue that multiple tasks are selected.

I agree with mbrandonpace in point C. A simple visual indicator would help.
I don't think option B would benefit. A lot of people use RTM via keyboard (me included, I almost never use the mouse when adding/editing tasks), and completing the task by ckecking the box would remove almost every keyboard functionality.
