That's weird.  Every app I use that understands some-button-to-paste
uses button 2. (Middle)

Woah.  I need to see your box.  If I have something like an URL "copied"
(ie, highlighted in, say, an Xterm), and then I click button-2 in a Netscape
window (note: NOT on a link, however!), it's just as if I typed the
URL in the "Go to:" / "Location:" field, or a "Open Location" dialog.
