Please read the bug report. The recipe starts with "emacs -Q".
And read the followup immediately afterward, including the part
about the defun needing to extend outside the window.
In fact, by looking closely you can often see the defun being first
selected correctly and then the region changing to select either
only part of it or more than it. It seems that something, perhaps
related to window recentering, does not respect keeping the region
as it has been defined.
