middle button paste does not work on gnome-terminal in rh6.1

The Middle button paste is fixed by an upgrade to October-gnome The
delete key is still functioning as a backspace though. (Reported to
the Gnome site)
The Keyboard is a UK keyboard. The mouse a serial genius netmouse
emulating three buttons.
It is a base install via ftp
It sounds like the upcoming October GNOME errata packages for RHL 6.1 will fix
The backspace/del problem is most likely because of your different keyboard
mapping. You might want to try using the gnome-terminal preferences to see if
swapping will fix it.
