Since selecting text in step 5 puts the selected text in the primary
selection, and thus overwrites the text saved there by the kill in
step 4, I don't see how it makes sense to set select-enable-primary
while using delete-selection-mode: these two options contradict each
other in fundamental ways.  On top of that, primary selection doesn't
really exist on MS-Windows, it's only emulated inside the Emacs
session, which makes its use even less useful.

IOW, I don't see a bug here.
