Public bug reported:
When I click in the address bar once, the entire URL is selected. In most other
applications, this is an indicator that my PRIMARY buffer  has been updated
with the full URL.
However, when I MMB-paste, the previous contents of the buffer appear. This has
tripped me up on many occasions.
Steps to reproduce:
1: Open a text editor, or any other recepticle for pasted text.
2: Select some text on a page.
3: Middle-click in the text editor, and verify that it's the text you selected
in step 2.
4: Click the address bar in Chromium. The URL is highlighted.
5: Middle-click in the text editor again.
6: Hit Ctrl+z. Frustratedly go back to your browser. Click the address bar
once, then again to deselect everything. Then drag or triple-click to select
7: Middle-click in the text editor again. Now it works.
In step 5, the full URL of the page you were visiting should have appeared.
However, it's still the text you selected in step 2.
I'm using Chromium version 52.0.2743.116 Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu
: I'm not shouting, this is what it's called. It's also known as the
"middle-mouse clipboard". See also
