This is not, in fact, a bug. It's a feature. It turns out that
S-mouse-1 extends the current selection, which is the usual convention
on Mac OS X. This is also documented:

   <S-Mouse-1> (i.e., clicking the left mouse button while holding down
   the <Shift> key) adjusts the region to the click position, just like
   <Mouse-3> (`mouse-save-then-kill'); it does not pop up a menu for
   changing the default face, as <S-Mouse-1> normally does (*note
   Temporary Face Changes::).  This change makes Emacs behave more like
   other Mac / GNUstep applications. ((--Mac / GNUStep Basics))
