It is not a regression; you are asking for a feature that never existed.

I checked in Emacs 22: double clicking with the mouse to select a word,
then using C-f, makes the region inactive.  Emacs 24 behaves similarly.

Maybe this is not what you meant.  In that case, I suggest (not for the
first time) giving a step-by-step recipe to reprouduce the exact
behavior you think is problematic.
