Problem is not "supporting the KDE2 behavior". Problem is that many 
users don't use only KDE. Many of my coworkers spend most of time in 
CDE. And "select with mouse, paste with Shift+Insert" works there. 
AFAIK it works even in console. It worked for years. And now it 
doesn't work?!? KDE is shit ... :)
