Your description is still too vague.  Please provide a step by step
recipe; don't describe what you did ("evaluating", "push-mark", etc.),
but what you typed.  For instance, here is what I did:

1. emacs -Q
2. Type the following: (kill-new (buffer-substring-no-properties 193 197))
3. C-x C-e

     => "kill" appears in the echo area

4. M-<
5. C-SPC
6. C-n
7. C-y

     => The word "kill" is yanked into the buffer.

I don't see any bug here.
