Go to any X application (firefox, etc) with a text field.
Holding shift, press the arrow keys and select some text.
Release shift, and press another down arrow to deselect it.

In Emacs 23 (in the absence of latest changes):

Run `emacs -Q'.

The text you selected is yanked into the buffer.  This is because the
other X application put your selected text in the primary selection.
How is the behavior of Emacs' new shift selection different from the
other X application's shift selection?
