Doesn't meet my observations.
In the original case cursor motion followed an exchange-point-and-mark
over a string found. Afterwards, moving the cursor, any active region
went into the clipboard. Next yank got it from there. Whilst the
string found and copied has been expected, but was not returned.
Ie got some arbitrary content resp. to the move away from the match-point.
This description is too vague. Could you please provide a precise,
step-by-step recipe, starting from `emacs -Q'?
The big difference IMHO is the cursor-motion-region-setting in emacs.
In X, regions are expressingly marked, while in Emacs it just the
difference beween point and any previously set mark.
select-active-regions only takes effect when Transient Mark mode is
enabled, which means the region is explicitly marked. Again, if this is
not what you see, please provide a step-by-step recipe, starting from
`emacs -Q', to demonstrate the problem.
