But, what is left click for you?  Do F1 k <left click>?
With Emacs 24.3 from the Fedora repo, I see (and this is
what I see for Emacs compiled from source as well)...
<down-mouse-1> at that spot runs the command mouse-drag-region, which
is an interactive compiled Lisp function.

It is bound to <down-mouse-1>.

(mouse-drag-region START-EVENT)
