bug#7015: Documentation of `mouse-drag-copy-region'

Today I discovered that selecting a region with the mouse automatically copies the region, altering the kill ring. I guess I don't use the mouse much, but I was expecting mouse dragging to select passively like shift arrows.

It took me a few minutes to find the simplest way to disable this behavior, by setting the `mouse-drag-copy-region' variable to nil.

I suggest the `mouse-drag-copy-region' variable should be cross-referenced in the `mouse-set-region' docstring, to shorten the path of discovery. Then it would only take C-h k drag-mouse-1 to find out about this variable.
