The last part, about C-w, is with x-select-enable-primary non-nil,
right?  With the default nil value, IIUC, C-w should _not_ put text
into primary, just into the clipboard.  That's what I understand from
Jan's explanations.

Why ``lame''?  Selections with C-SPC+movement and with Shift+movement
are different, so why expect them to behave the same.  I think
shift-selected text is conceptually like mouse-selected text.  Do you
expect mouse-selected text also not set the primary selection?

I know the feeling ;-)
