GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit) of Sat Jun 24 2000 on snail

I put the following in a file called init:

(custom-set-variables
 '(pc-selection-mode t))

I start Emacs like this:

emacs -q -l init

I check the variable:

pc-selection-mode's value is 
t

I check (describe-key (kbd "S-<left>")):

"S-left is undefined"

Therefore, the variable gets set, but pc-selection-mode is not run.
My copy of the pc-select.el has a copyright line from 1997.  I see the
:set clause and the pc-selection-mode variable has a docstring.

Alex.
