Did you read the section "Selection changes" in etc/NEWS?  I think
what you see is the result of a deliberate change in behavior
described there.  In particular, double-clicking a mouse no longer
puts the selected text into the clipboard, only into the PRIMARY
selection.

The above-mentioned section also tells you how to customize Emacs to
get the old behavior back.
