IIUC, the reason is that mouse-sel-mode reimplements the whole standard
mouse click / mouse drag functionality, and mouse-1-click-follows-link
is implemented in the standard mouse handling only (mouse.el).

In what way do they become unusable ?  

Again, if the problem is that mouse-sel-mode doesn't understand the
new mouse-1-click-follows-link, so I would expect that the mouse works
as it used to when you enable mouse-sel-mode.  In what way does it

Does mouse-2 still work as it used to?

Anybody want to update mouse-sel.el to support mouse-1-click-follows-link ?
