I am using Apple Magic Mouse on Ubuntu 12.04, it is working well most of the time. However, sometimes what should be a simple left-click triggers some weird behaviors, like pasting the content of the clipboard if I click on editable text area. Or closing the browser tab when I was just selecting the tab.

Does any how to fix those issues or at at least where should I be looking at?
