Should we open a new bug report for this?

This report is fine.  The omission to copy to PRIMARY looks intended, because 
when text is read-only and cut acts like copy, text is copied to PRIMARY.

"intended" ? If it is intended, which is its usefulness?

If one wants to move text from a place to another, this doesn't work using the mouse and the "cut" icon on the tool-bar...

1. select the text with mouse-1 (dragging over the text)
2. click the "cut" icon on the tool-bar: the text is removed
3. now move the mouse pointer where you want the text to reappear
4. click mouse-2 to paste: nothing happens

So, newly, which the usefulness of the above "intended" omission?

I wonder if there is some thought behind this we don't see.

Copy does save in PRIMARY, but cut does not for some reason.

I've installed a patch which calls force-mode-line-update when the mark
is (de)activated.

Hmm... it seems there are still problems, mainly with "cut" icon...

With a recent trunk build (GTK build on Cygwin, two days ago), I see

$ emacs -Q &

1. Now with the mouse I select the word "create" on second row of scratch
buffer. The "cut" and "copy" icons in tool-bar are active.

2. I click the "cut" icon and the word "create" is removed and the
"cut" and
"copy" icons are grayed (disabled).

3. Then I move the mouse pointer on the letter "b" of the word
"buffer" on
third row and...

4. ...I click the mouse-2 (wheel) to paste.. but it doesn't work, only
cursor is moved over the "b".

The same happens if in step 3., after moving the mouse pointer, I
click with
mouse-1 to move the cursor over the "b" before step 4.

If I repeat all the above steps changing the "cut" icon with "copy"
icon, all
works as expected.
