But I agree with Kim that if I'm just typing at a *shell* prompt
(for instance), there's no reason to highlight the text that was
scrolled to underneath the mouse (i.e. the text moved to where the mouse
is, instead of the mouse being moved over the text).

I don't find it really important, but if I could choose between the current
behavior and something like what Kim suggests, I'd prefer Kim's behavior.
