bug#11772: 24.1; A click changes the primary selection

From: Vincent Lefevre
Subject: bug#11772: 24.1; A click changes the primary selection
Date: Sun, 24 Jun 2012 19:39:34 +0200

If there is something selected in the Emacs window but is no longer
the PRIMARY selection and one clicks somewhere in the window, the
primary selection is changed to what had been selected.

To reproduce the bug:

1. Run "emacs -Q" under X.
2. Select something in the Emacs window, e.g. "This buffer".
3. Select something in some other application that supports the
   PRIMARY selection, e.g. xterm.
4. Optional: paste the PRIMARY selection somewhere (but not in the
   Emacs window opened above). As expected, one can see that the
   selection done in (3) is pasted.
5. Click somethere in the Emacs window, with the left button.
   As expected, the selection is no longer highlighted.
6. Paste the PRIMARY selection somewhere: it is the one from Emacs
   (e.g. "This buffer"), i.e. in (2), that is pasted instead of the
   most recent PRIMARY selection from (3).

This is a regression: GNU Emacs 23.4.1 from Debian doesn't have this
