Re: patch: enable transient mark mode


Modification of any buffer sets deactivate-mark to t. Consider the
simple example:

(let ((deactivate-mark nil))
    (insert "test"))
==> t

Command loop then checks that deactivate-mark is t and destroys the
active status of the mark. That is the problem. You should rebind
deactivate-mark arround modification of dtk scratch buffer or any other
buffer when this modification must not deactivate the mark.
