bug#18090: 24.4.50; `delete-selection-helper' logic changed for non-mouse region?

Prior to Emacs 23, the delsel.el code that handles a yank had this code:
;; Before a yank command, make sure we don't yank the
;; head of the kill-ring that really comes from the
;; currently active region we are going to delete.
;; That would make yank a no-op.
(when (and (string= (buffer-substring-no-properties (point) (mark))
That code dates from the creation of delsel.el. In Emacs 23, these
two sexps were appended to the `and' conditions, which completely
changes the meaning/behavior (though the comment was not modified):
This changed the behavior so that the yanking point is now rotated only
when the mouse was used to set the region. This makes no sense to me,
but perhaps I am missing something. Does this make sense to you?
If it does make sense, then at least the comment should be updated to
reflect the current behavior.
BTW, I also think it would be better to use `while' instead of `when'
in the code:
(let ((tail kill-ring))
(while (and tail (string= (buffer-substring-no-properties (point) (mark))
(fboundp 'mouse-region-match) ; ????
(mouse-region-match)) ; ????
(setq tail (cdr tail))))
