I'm not entirely sure whether this is a bug or a feature, but selecting a region with a combination of keyboard and mouse doesn't work any longer in Emacs 24, at least not in a plain emacs -Q session. Marking the start of a region with C-SPC and then using a simple mouse click to mark the end doesn't work anymore, because clicking anywhere seems to set the mark now. My muscle memory, trained over decades by Emacs 23 and its predecessors, doesn't like this change. I keep M-w'ing and C-w'ing empty regions :-(. What's also a bit annoying IMHO is that fact, that the Cut and Copy buttons in the tool-bar flash everytime I click somewhere to position the cursor. I just notice this now, because I don't have a tool-bar in my usual customization.

Is there a customization option that I've overlooked which prevents <down-mouse-1> (or is it <mouse-1>?) from setting the mark? I've also looked over the "** Selection changes" part of etc/NEWS, but didn't find anything related to this particular effect.

Kind regards,
