This is caused by the calls to selection->clear() in Editor::set_selected_track_as_side_effect().

I'm not sure what part of the selection those are meant to clear, but I don't think the marker selection needs to be cleared there.

This is intentional, because the existence of multiple selections of different kinds of objects creates ambiguity when (for example) cut/copy/delete operations are used.

I'm sure that marker and range selections used to be able to co-exist, and I found it a useful feature for editing, especially in conjunction with 'Playhead to active marker'.

It's useful to place and select a marker at a point where I want to make an edit, then scroll around, selet and copy the range I want to use, and then jump back to the selected marker to paste, and this is now broken.

I don't think there's any ambiguity with simultaneous marker and range selection anyway, since Cut, Delete, &c. don't apply to selected markers. If there were any ambiguity, it would apply equally well to simultaneous marker and region selections, which seem to be perfectly well allowed still.

Also, this renders 'Edit point = marker' pretty useless.
