"Select to copy and middle-click to paste. That's very convenient
usability feature associated with UNIX graphical environments. But it
is confusing for new users, so the ability to middle-click paste was
briefly removed from GNOME 3.10. It was restored few days later, but
with clear message: middle-click paste will be permanently removed
from next GNOME version."
