Umm... emacs -Q:
C-h v mark-ring RET shows that mark-ring is initially nil.
Now click <n> times with the left mouse button somewhere in the *scratch* 
buffer.
Now mark-ring contains <n-1> elements.

Am I missing or misinterpreting something here?
C-SPC, left mouse click somewhere, then C-w doesn't kill anything. In Emacs 23, 
it did.
