Description of problem:
When using mouse to copy/paste between gnome-teminals, if the second terminal is
selected by clicking on the terminal rather than on the border, the selected
text is cleared from the clipboard(?) and when middle mouse is used to paste -
nothing is pasted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 2 gnome-terminal applications
2. Select some text in terminal 1 using mouse (either double/tripple click or
click & drag)
3. Now select the second terminal by clicking mouse-Left on it (inside)
4. Try pasting in the 2nd terminal using middle mouse button

Actual Results:  Nothing happens. 

Expected Results:  The selected text should be pasted in the second window

Additional info:

konsole & xterm don't exhibit this bad behavior.
