2. Carry out the steps in NEWS to return to the pre-24 selection behavior:
    Change `mouse-drag-copy-region' to t.
    Change `x-select-enable-primary' to t.
    Change `x-select-enable-clipboard' to nil.

Please try:

(setq select-active-regions nil
      mouse-drag-copy-region t
      x-select-enable-primary t
      x-select-enable-clipboard nil)
(global-set-key [mouse-2] 'mouse-yank-at-click)

I'm not saying there isn't a real issue, what you describe does sound a bit similar to a problem that occasionally occurred with the new settings (without any changes to them) a while back, but please try with the above settings, which are AFAIK still* (whatever the NEWS file may currently say) the actual current recipe to restore the old behaviour (except on windows) - if you only did precisely what you said in your 2., then AFAIK you were running with a doom-laden mix of old and new settings.

* bearing in mind I'm only beginning a personal catchup on about 3½ months of emacs developments.
