(I'm going through old bug reports that unfortunately have not received
any responses yet.)

I don't use cua mode myself, but this looks like it's "obviously" the
right thing, so I've applied the patch to Emacs 27.

If a cua user determines that it's not quite the right thing to do,
please feel free to revert the patch.
