Not quite - if you're trying to paste something eg. 10 times it's very
tiresome to have to click 10 times, but sufficiently slowly that it is
never interpretted as a double/triple click.

I admit that it is not hugely important, but it was bugging someone.

Yes - it's fair enough to say that there is no such thing as a
double-middle-click, which is exactly why it shouldn't cause
unpredictable behaviour when you do it by accident.

I mentioned this in an email to Miguel, but he did not reply to that
part of the email, and like Kevin, I am reluctant to pester busy people
by repeating emails :-)
