Are you running KDE by any chance?  Its clipboard daemon, 'klipper'

Ah, yes, that may be it. Thanks.
So, may Emacs 24 provide for this?
I don't think there's anything you can do.  That setting should affect
not only Emacs, but any other X application, causing shift-selection to
copy into the keyboard.  Any user that enables this behavior presumably
wants it.

Yes, who enables it. Presently it's enabled by default, it's set to `always'.
With Emacs 23 the default is nil, that's better.

Also value of `only shift-selection or mouse-drag'
seems a reasonable default, `always' not.

Maybe it's not KDE-related though.
