But that IS one of several effects of x-select-enable-clipboard t with
mouse-drag-copy-region t in existing emacs when you merely select text
with a mouse drag (but only because mouse-drag-track with
mouse-drag-copy-region t does a copy-region-as-kill, which does an
interprogram-cut-function, which affects the clipboard if
x-select-enable-clipboard is t)
