AFAIK that's on purpose since selection is a mouse only thing. You need to 
select by mouse (often it won't work with keyboard selections) to set 
selection in the first place, and you MMB to paste it. Also, selection is 
pasted at the place where you click rather than the cursor position, which is 
hard to catch with a keyboard shortcut.
