Git bisect says:

72166f2f3dba18f1217c666574032f5a0351ed65 is the first bad commit
commit 72166f2f3dba18f1217c666574032f5a0351ed65
Author: Martin Rudalics <address@hidden>
Date:   Tue May 3 08:38:49 2016 +0200

    Bind `widget-button-click' to mouse-1/-2 instead of down-mouse-1/-2
    * lisp/wid-edit.el (widget-keymap): Bind `widget-button-click'
    to mouse-1/-2 instead of down-mouse-1/-2.  Suggested by Stefan
    Monnier.  (Bug#19185, Bug#20398)

And indeed, when I execute the above recipe on a build from the commit
immediate prior to the above, namely:

commit 3a21ea15aecf7af8237c53dfafdc07650a09be3f
Author: Lee Bochicchio <address@hidden>
Date:   Tue May 3 00:12:53 2016 +0200

    Add more abbrev tests
    * test/lisp/abbrev-tests.el
    (clear-abbrev-table-test): Use `abbrev-expansion'
    (abbrev-table-empty-p-test, list-abbrevs-test)
    (prepare-abbrev-list-buffer-test, insert-abbrevs-test)
    (edit-abbrevs-test, define-abbrevs-test)
    (abbrev-edit-save-to-file-test): New tests (bug#23139).

I do not observe the problem with mouse-1 in a Gnus Article buffer.
