Hi ! 

There's a problem with term.el, in  char mode. If you split your frame
in  two windows,  one  with the  term  buffer, and  the  other with  a
standard  buffer, if your  cursor is  in the  standard buffer  and you
middle-click in  the term  buffer, then, you  get an error  instead of
pasting the text. 

I'm using the following workaround :

  (define-key term-raw-map (kbd "<mouse-2>") '(lambda (c a)
                                                (interactive "e\nP")
                                                (mouse-set-point c)
                                                (term-mouse-paste c

But  the  line (mouse-set-point  c)  should  simply  be added  to  the
beginning of term-mouse-paste, is it ? 

Similarly, the secondary selection  pasting doesn't work well, because
the   text   gets   inserted   in   the  buffer   instead   of   being

I'm using the following :

(defun term-mouse-paste-secondary (click arg)
  "Insert the last stretch of killed text at the position clicked on."
  (interactive "e\nP")
   (term-send-raw-string (or (condition-case () (x-get-selection 'SECONDARY) 
(error ()))
                             (error "No selection or cut buffer available"))))
   ;; Give temporary modes such as isearch a chance to turn off.
   (run-hooks 'mouse-leave-buffer-hook)
   (setq this-command 'yank)
   (term-send-raw-string (condition-case () (x-get-selection 'SECONDARY) (error 

(defun my-mouse-yank-secondary (CLICK)
  "Insert the secondary selection at point
regardless of where you click."
  (interactive "e")
  (if (eq major-mode 'term-mode)
      (term-mouse-paste-secondary CLICK nil)
    (mouse-yank-secondary CLICK)))

and  I call  my-mouse-yank-secondary instead  of mouse-yank-secondary.
This should be doable also with defadvice. 

Hopes this helps,
