evil-execute-in-emacs-state from visual state eliminates region
Highlight text with
\ to execute in emacs-state. The highlighted region disappears. When I finish executing whatever in emacs-state, I'm back in visual state but the mark end of the region is at point instead of where it was prior.
Expected that I could execute a command in emacs-state with the region intact. Afterall, a user might want the region to be input to the command executed in emacs-state.
