To summarize:

    C-w and M-w should copy to the clipboard and set the primary
      in addition to updating the kill-ring.

    shift-selection and mouse-dragging should set/update the primary,
      leaving the clipboard and the kill-ring alone.

    mouse-2 should yank the primary.

What about the region highlighted by typing C-SPC twice and then
moving cursor -- will it go to the primary as well?

[it's c-spc once out-of-box, you must have turned off transient-mark-mode?]


I would expect so

That would be an annoyance, IMO.

Well, I find it isn't in practice (quite some time thereof now), in fact it is least surprising: It feels quite in keeping with X11 user expectations that the most recently selected whatever is to be found in primary.
