I don't care about this itself.  The bug is that after this, the mark is not
active.  If I do (for example)  drag click M->  it says "Mark set".  But then 
M-w  complains "The mark is not active now".

This is a fairly recent change, as I do this kind of thing quite often and
never had this error message before.
