That's what I'm trying to explain.  Mouse selection now uses the
(only. OLDVAL) mechanism implemented part of the shift-selection changes
installed many months ago:

  *** If a command sets `transient-mark-mode' to (only . OLDVAL), that
  means to activate transient-mark-mode temporarily, until the next
  unshifted point motion command or mark deactivation.  Afterwards,
  reset transient-mark-mode to the value OLDVAL.  The values `only' and
  `identity', introduced in Emacs 22, are now deprecated.

Mouse-selection is now a little "stickier", and this behavior is good in
most cases.  But the way ansi-term is set up, the mark never gets
deactivated.  That's why this bug occurs.
