After the merge from emacs-26, the highlighting of a region
stopped working for me after setting the mark or selecting a
region with the mouse.
I bisected the problem and it was introduced in commit
Since this seems to be related to GTK, for the record, I have
libgtk2.0-0 version 2.24.30-4. But it might be relevant to let you
know that I use openbox, run as a standalone session.
Thanks for posting this. I have seen this bug, but haven't yet figured out how to consistently reproduce it.
(nothing happens! the text does not get selected (or doesn't seem to))
Then I do M-x revert-buffer, and C-SPC M-f starts working again.
I have faced this infrequently, and don't yet have a clean recipe to reproduce it.
