mark deactivated when it should not be

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.3 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of Mon Jul 17 2000 on tesla
configured using `configure  --prefix=/tool/pandora/.package/emacs-20.7 
--with-x-toolkit=athena --with-pop --with-gcc --sharedstatedir=/tmp'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Why does this inactivate the mark?  If transient-mark-mode is off, the
mark remains active.

emacs -q -no-site-file
in *scratch* buffer do:

(transient-mark-mode t)C-x C-e C-SPC
(save-excursion (set-buffer (get-buffer-create "*argh*"))
  (insert "fook"))C-x C-x C-x C-x C-x C-e

;highlight goes on ......^
;highlight goes off .....................^

Another case:

(transient-mark-mode t)C-x C-e
C-SPC C-h v mark-active C-h v mark-active

;reports t ...........^
;reports nil ...........................^

Even though the *scratch* buffer is unchanged.
