Yes, this is what my initial intuition was. I have traced this error down
to something much more obscure. I don't understand why it's happening. But
let me give you some code to reproduce the odd behavior without concern for
`multiple-cursors`.

Make sure both files are in the same directory.

# Working Correctly

1. open `sample.el` with: emacs -Q sample.el
2. eval just the `progn` portion of the provided code.
3. transient mark something
4. hit C-.

the active-mark is still there. now exit emacs and start again,

# Odd Behavior

1. open `sample.el` with: emacs -Q sample.el
2. eval the `defadvice`
3. eval the `progn` portion of the provided code.
4. transient mark something
5. hit C-.

now the active-mark disappears.

AND what is even weirder is that if you remove the `compile` option from
the `defadvice` then there is no issue. but there is something weird here!
