Fixed in SVN, r5334. For now, cutting a word simply switches off the mark (if it was on). It is difficult to figure out where the mark should move when it is on the same line as the cursor, or within word distance. This improvement will follow later.

Working patch (a first attempt) is attached. What doesn't work well is when the mark is on while deleting words -- when the mark is on the current line, it starts jumping around. I don't get that yet.

Yes, those two would be nice functions to have.

Please do it yourself and submit a patch.

Hello! Please add bindable functions similar to readline's kill-word and backward-kill-word (bound to M-D and ^W in bash by default).
