Description of problem:

input box in a form in epiphany (not address bar), as you can see there's no
Paste option!  But now press shift-insert, the text would be pasted.  It's quite


Select some text in a page in epiphany, copy it by ctrl+insert, then
paste it in a text box in the same page by pressing shift+insert, it
works.  Now select some other text in the same page by RIGHT-CLICK and
selecting COPY, now try pasting it in the text box in the same page by
pressing shift+insert, you get the old text pasted!!  So
right-click->copy is not doing anything.  (Well, the addressbar works,
as it's a simple gtk widget).

I don't know if the same problem is in mozilla too.

Looks like this was fixed in galeon head, but I'm not going to back-port it.
