We must be miscommunicating somewhere. My C-space is bound to cua-set-mark, which seems to be so even if I start --no-init-file, so I take that to be standard. (Do you have some other binding?)  When I press C-space in transient-mark-mode, mark gets activated or deactivated or activated again or deactivated again, but point never moves.  If I disable TMM, mark is set or cleared, but again point never changes. How does any of that "return to where you came from"?
