To reproduce, run 'nano NEWS README', then type <Shift+Down> a few times.  Then type M-> twice, and see that the region that was selected is no longer selected.

Expected behavior: switching between buffers does not cancel any Shift selection, because the cursor did not move, and there was no intent to move the cursor either.

(Original report was by David Lawrence Ramsey in http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/nano-devel/2019-01/msg00015.html, indirectly.)
