I don't think there's anything you can do. That setting should affect

Yes, who enables it.

In context, Chong Yidong was talking about the potentially relevant KDE klipper setting, not any emacs setting (and meant clipboard not keyboard as Stefan already pointed out).

Maybe it's not KDE-related though.

A screenshot of a possible KDE klipper configuration from my system:


Is yours different? In particular, is "Synchronise contents of the clipboard and the selection" turned on?

[Just in case, auf Deutsch: http://i.imgur.com/4kb97.png
"Synchronise contents of the clipboard and the selection" =>
"Inhalt von Zwischenablage und aktueller Auswahl angleichen"]

Hi, thanks,

however, think that KDE matter points into the wrong direction.

24 works now so far after setting `select-active-regions' other than `always'
23 works right out of the box, as these setting is nil.

All I'm saying is: Probably you will get more bug reports, is the default-setting of
`select-active-regions' remains `always'.

Just let the user do that, if wanted.
