Re: Problems with the set-mark-command

The advise on kill-region and mark-region-as-kill are
sufficiently simple that I can assure you that that is not
the problem.

I suspect there is something in your environment that is
indeed deactivating the mark --check if you have
accidentally turned on transient-mark-mode.

You can disable the advice of specific commands by using M-x
and M-x ad-deactivate
-- though I dont recommend the above unless you know what
you are doing.

The fact that C-x C-x is switching point and mark is a
pretty strong indication that you have something in your
environment deactivating the mark when you are at your
workstation and move the cursor.
And as I say above, one possible culprit is transient-mark-mode
