I think this is cua-mode in action. It's one of the first things I
disabled in Aquamacs :) You can customise it, I believe, but in any
(setq cua-mode nil)
ought to do it. That, of course, may be too radical and possibly you
can get away with simply
(setq cua-highlight-region-shift-only t)
I'm not sure, because I have not tried it.
