OK, now I see what you mean.

The old mouse dragging code had a special behavior to pop the mark if
you did not move the mouse much after the down event, to avoid setting
the mark (this did not work reliably; if you move the mouse a little bit
between the down and up events, the mark gets set anyway).  I'll see if
there is a way to get this to work with the new code, but it won't be
for the 24.1 release.
