Why do you keep using a mouse function to copy and then an emacs
function to paste?  Stick with one related function.  You did a proper
highlight with the left mouse button to copy.  Now, use the middle
mouse button (or whatever is passing for "middle button" on your
mouse) to paste the text you highlighted.  Works for me.
