Are you saying that one can't set mark, move the point with the mouse

totally unacceptable, it makes mouse-set-point almost unusable.

Well,  agreed:

Or not...

It "only" causes a problem with mixed keyboard/mouse-1 i.e.
(d) hit keyboard C-SPC to set mark and then use mouse-1-click
(mouse-set-point) with the expectation of defining an active region.

Uh. Did (d) work before?  It probably did, I just don't have an
unmutilated emacs to hand to check.

No, it didn't work that way without the patch: when you
mouse-set-point (mouse-1-click) in CVS emacs, the region deactivates
anyway, which _is_ normal behaviour in X11 applications come to think
of it (mouse-1-drag highlight some text in firefox, mouse-1-click
somewhere else...).

Okay, I guess I read "remove mark" instead of deactivate mark. As long as C-x C-x works it is OK.
