1. transient-mark-mode is nil

2. I mark a chunk of text using one of the following methods with the
   mouse from time to time:

   a. double click on a word
   b. drag with mouse-1
   c. click with mouse-1 and click with mouse-3

3. I then either

   a. delete (double-click mouse-3)
   b. paste (mouse-2 elsewhere)
   c. click somewhere again using mouse-1 to make sure that the
      position is correct, and then paste (using mouse-2 or C-y).

In the first two cases, the highlighting stays, in the third case
highlighting disappears as click around or use movement commands and
to find the correct place where I want to paste.

I'm the original complainer Stefan mentioned, and here's my complaint:

(1) and (2) as above.  Type `C-h'.  Highlighting disappears.  Any keyboard
input -- even a prefix key! -- removes the highlighting.  Why?

If you set track-mouse (like my follow-mode.el package does), even unbound
mouse-movement events now have the same effect.
