It's probably a little late but that change just caused a bug in the
evil-mode package. Because Evil does deal a lot with the user interface
it sometimes plays around with point and mark.

Currently it's only one place, I can fix that easily. But I have no idea
if we rely on the old behaviour in other places.

However, I can live with the new behaviour, it just took me some time to
find out what causes that bug ;)
