Target version:-


With R5.5, middle mouse button emulation (by pressing left and right buttons at the same time) always just worked.
In R6, it doesn't seem to.
This makes it impossible to paste text in xterms or to one click open a link in a new tab in firefox.

For this to work AllowEmptyInput must be set to False.
Doing so would have larger ramifications, like stopping X from working at all for some people.
Maybe with xorg 1.7 it will be easier.
