No I don't.  I even have (setq-default transient-mark-mode nil) without
remembering why I put that in long ago.

You were nevertheless right: I found out that dragging the mouse to mark
something sets transient-mark-mode to 'identity behind my back.  Even with
emacs -q.

This then might be linked to another irritating thing I recently noticed: when
double-clicking, the marked word is shown in region face, but reverts to
face immediately.  The next double click sets region face semi permanently
(till doing something else).  The next double click again only blinks region
face, and so on.
