Description of problem:
As of current Fedora 22, copy and paste with the middle mouse button is not working in GNOME Terminal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to GNOME Wayland session.
2. Launch gnome-terminal.
3. Type some characters.
4. Select characters with mouse.
5. Press middle mouse button.
Selected characters get pasted in gnome-terminal.
- This only happens in a GNOME Wayland session.
- Keyboard shortcut is working.
- Video chip is an AMD RV620.
Still broken in gnome-shell-3.16.1-1.fc22.
Still broken in gnome-shell-3.16.2-1.fc22.
The selection buffer is an X-specific concept that does not exist in the wayland protocol.

However, copy and paste with the middle mouse button works correctly for Fedora 21 during a wayland session. So, this looks like a regression to me.

In Fedora 21, applications were still using the X backend by default, even in a wayland session.
