What rebinding of mouse-2 are you referring to?

Rebind back to mouse-yank-at-click.

Yes, in addition to customizations

mouse-drag-copy-region => t
select-active-regions => nil

The old and new settings on w32 both have

x-select-enable-clipboard => t

so that doesn't need changing on w32 unless you've changed it.

IIRC there was a later and w32-specific change (very much against my advice at the time) involving mixing up primary and clipboard which he _may_ have thought obviated the need to revert the binding.

But, well, please do try the rebind and the customizations above together if you haven't tried them before.
