The menu we have in C-mouse-3 does not show the most basic options like copy, paste, and so on to access them fast. We have there a set of maybe more advanced options; but not the basics, so that menu is less useful in general and its use is very poor in our days. BTW, xterm intercepts C-mouse-3 but not mouse-3.
