weird region behavior

The region behavior has recently changed (I seem to recall this being
discussed before):

When I select a region with my mouse, it becomes yellow (as expected)
and the content is saved in the kill-ring (again, as expected).
If I now move the cursor with an arrow key, the yellow region does not
disappear (as it did before) but is instead extended as I move the
point (luckily, the content is not copied into the kill-ring), and some
commands appear to be limited to the yellow region.
I think this is called "Transient Mark mode", but I did not touch
`transient-mark-mode', so I should not be getting it, right?

C-g appears to remove each instance of this "active region" (?), but I
would rather avoid having to hit C-g after each selection operation.

So, how do I restore the original behavior?

A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits.
