Description of problem: middle click on the scroll bar in a message composition
window causes a paste into the message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): to the best of my
knowledge, all versions

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put some text into X11's clipboard
2. compose a long message
3. middle click on scroll bar to jump to a location in the message
Actual results:
Window scrolls and text gets pasted into the message body

Expected results:
Window scrolls to desired location in the window.

Additional info:
I have reported this upstream:

Unfortunately, it seems to have gotten stuck in limbo, and as far as anyone can
tell, the attached patch works as expected.  I have been using this patch for at
least a year and have not encountered any unexpected consequences.
