This change appeared in one of the last patchset of vim 7.4 and was one of the
"features" of the vim 8.0 release.

I do agree this is just totally painful :(

Best regards,
One of the things that I inherited with the Vim port was the DEFAULT_VIMRC 
option (which installs /usr/ports/editors/vim/files/vimrc), and I haven't 
touched it.

I have moused disabled in all my boxes so I have no idea about bad mouse 
behaviour in Vim. If there is a bad default that is causing grief, let's just 
fix it in that default vimrc.

I'm not really understanding what the unexpected behaviour is so I can't make 
an intelligent recommendation myself, but I'll go with whatever you folks 

# Adam
I'm in iterm on my mac.
I ssh to a freebsd machine
I use vim on a file.
I used to be able to use the mouse on my mac to copy a few lines into the cut 
buffer.. slide-shift-click etc..
now suddenly if I try highlight some code in vim to copy it vim drags stuff 
around, scrolls up and down, deletes stuff and generally makes a mess.
if click, instead of starting a copy zone it grabs some of the text.

basically it makes hte mouse useless.
I can;t copy and paste from a file I'm ediitng. I end up having to exit vim and 
do it in vi.
There have been a number of recommendations in this thread for you, Julian, including "set 
mouse=a" and "set mouse=v". Test some of them out and let me know what works for you.

actually I never saw one about mouse=a however I did see and try mouse=v which didn't work for me.

I have now tried mouse=a and am happy to say that that does what I need.
