Hi alltogether,
I'm new to this list, but not new to vim, so let me say "hello" to

I'm not that poweruser, but I hate unnecesary repeating things and vim
allways gave me, what I needed :o))

Im working on ubuntu-linux 5.10 with the boxed vim Version 6.3.78

I subscribed this list to get ahead with a problem, which drives me
crasy nearly everytime I work with vim:

If I mark some text in visual mode that text is put in the x-clipboard
and therefore pasted with the mouse on the action following.

Try the following (in normal mode):
1. Take text from anywhere with the mouse
2. clear the target area and enter insert mode typing "v", <n>"l", "s"
3. paste with middle mouse button

result: You get the text vom cleared area -- anoying!!
expected result: the anywhere fetched text should be pasted.

I noticed that behavior since vim 6.x

This apears in console-vim (xterm) an gvim. 
using a virtual tty with gpm works as expected.

Can anyone help me to find the right option to be set, or to file a
bugreport. I subscribed here to get feedback/confirmation before
bothering the developers.

Any hints?
