Sometimes when I highlight text in one application and then click on another application and start typing: The text I highlighted, with or without copying, automatically pastes itself in the the application I'm working in. Current work around is to just to use the undo function of the application I'm typing in. Is this fixed in 12.10? It's an ancient bug listed in the Ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1654965. He's using Gnome I'm using "XFCE 4.8".
