Okay, those two lines suggest a possible misunderstanding, or you were
just talking loosely - in tmm,  C-SPC sets and activates the mark.
mouse-1 clicking (or zero-length drag) just happens to deactivate it.
FWIW mouse 3 clicking doesn't deactivate the mark, but may move the
mark or point according to a nice little do-what-I-mean algo.

Moving the the cursor after C-SPC doesn't activate the mark in tmm, it
just makes the already-active region become nonzero sized.
