OK, what happens is that mark-something assumes that if (> (point)
(mark)), forward motion was used to mark, and otherwise backward
motion. It then negates the argument in the latter case to preserve
the backward motion. To work around this, you need to manipulate the
argument passed to backward-word:
(defun mark-word-backward (&optional count)
;; this is tricky: if we get here, then
;; mark-something has already done (goto-char (mark))
(= (mark) (point))
(setq x (- x)))
Does GNU have a mark-word-backward that works?
