I wasn't aware of mouse-sel-mode before, but trying it now I don't see
this behavior with Emacs 21.2 and 20.7 on my laptop.  Could this be
because I have three-button emulation enabled under X?  (I.e., when I
simultaneously press mouse1 and mouse3 (using an external PS/2
three-button mouse), and then release either, the region gets yanked a
la mouse2.)

Also, when mouse-sel-mode is enabled, I cannot kill the selected
region by clicking mouse3 a second time, but only by double-clicking
mouse3.  Is this intended?  What's more, when I subsequently disable
mouse-sel-mode again, I still can't kill the selected region by
clicking mouse3 a second time (though -- provided transient-mark-mode
is enabled -- I can kill it by double-clicking mouse3).  I don't know
how to restore the previous behavior (where clicking mouse3 twice
first selects and then kills the region) without killing and
restarting Emacs.  Is there something I'm missing or should I file a
bug report?  (This happens with both Emacs 21.2 and 20.7, both with my
init-file as well as with -q --no-site-file.)
