Are you using emacs -Q? If not, perhaps something in your .emacs is
causing the problem. What is your value of `mouse-1-click-follows-link'?

I don't see the problem, with emacs -Q in this build:

In GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600)
 of 2008-11-24 on LENNART-69DE564
Windowing system distributor `Microsoft Corp.', version 5.1.2600
configured using `configure --with-gcc (3.4) --no-opt --cflags
-Ic:/g/include -fno-crossjumping'

If your version is more recent than that, check Emacs NEWS (`C-h n')
to see if this change was intentional. If it was not, please file an
Emacs bug: `M-x report-emacs-bug'.
