You should call FetchAll along with the call to SelectAll if you want all
records both present and selected. I will look into the SelectedBookmarks( )
method because it should recognize the SelectAll flag and do a fetch all in
such a case. Either way, you have to do a fetch all so just put it in your
code for safety sake.
