Erroneous selection extension in Emacs version 22.1 for Win32

If a text is selected and the selected text is scrolled away from the visible
window (using the mouse pointer on the scroll bar on the right or on the up
or down scroll button, top and bottom right), the selected area is extended
at the same time as the original selected text moves away from the window.

I checked the previous version of Emacs that I used (21.3), and it did not behave in
this way. In my opinion the current behavior is a bug. There are situations
where "automatic extension of selection" feels natural; for example, when one
selects a text, and, while the mouse button is pressed, the mouse is
simultaneously moved downward, even below the emacs window. In that case the
text is scrolled upward and the selected area is extended at the same time as
the originally selected text travels upward. In my opinion the bug I am
reporting consists of the fact that "selection extension when mouse button
pressed" is not cancelled once the mouse pointer enters the the scroll bar
area.
