It is not unusual in the *nix world to copy to the X11 primary buffer only by highlighting the text to be copied, with the middle button subsequently used to paste the copied text. This is normal behavior and may be configured on an app-by-app basis (e.g. Firefox's middlemouse.paste and middlemouse.contentLoadURL configuration options), but there is no global way to easily override this.
