patch: enable transient mark mode



I found this issue already reported in 2009:
http://www.cs.vassar.edu/~priestdo/emacspeak/2009/msg00000.html

It is very difficult for me to live without transient mark mode. This patch seems to fix the problem.

Before this patch some commands (for example dtk-speak) caused deactivation of the mark. Even right after setting the mark with C-SPC and checking by evaluation of mark-active, the result was nil. Now I see transient-mark-mode works in simple cases. If one finds a case where it still has problems, please report.
