I had exactly the same DRC crosshair paralysis issue, due to the
standard Ubuntu repository version of pcb having that bug. I lived
with it until about 6 months ago, then finally tried downloading the
latest stable version of pcb, and life became better in many ways :)

So installing the latest stable version fixed that problem for me, I
hope you are successful. Oh and there's a script somewhere for making
sure that all pcb's dependencies are first installed too, that might
need running first, sorry to be vague...

Matt
