The doc string of the variable pc-selection-mode says this:

  You must modify via \\[customize] for this variable to have an effect.

Did the OP turn on this mode via Customize?  The sentence "I put the 
following in a file called init:" suggests that the customization was 
done manually.  Furthermore, ``a file called init'' seems to indicate 
that the customization is not in the user's .emacs file, but in another 
file called literally `init'.
