Bug # 11588 looks very similar to what I am talking about.  Using
CTL-spc to set the mark for a region and then using left mouse click to
mark the end of the region does not work every time like it did in emacs
23 and before.  Years and years of marking regions like this and then
with emacs 24 it not working anymore is frustrating.
