Sorry i'm not answering your actual question.  What operating system and
what graphical interface are you using?  That is typical X behavior,
i.e. selecting text in any program automatically copies it to the
clipboard.  You can paste by clicking the middle mouse button (or two
simultaneously if you're using a two-button mouse).

Why do you find it annoying?  Are you doing something special with the
clipboard?  What are you doing selecting text that you don't want to
