Correction: I figured out that the nature of the problem is different.
When I mark a region of text with C-SPC and movement keys, everything
works fine if I then hit M-w _twice_.  After the first press, the
highlighting disappears, and after the second press, the cursor briefly
blinks at the mark, signalling that the text was actually saved.

I'll dig deeper into this when I find time...
