[SLUG] middle button copy/paste fails

I'm used to selecting text and then pasting using the emulated middle mouse button on a two button mouse.

This works most of the time but occasionally stops working and worse, it does unpredictable things until re-boot, which is truly annoying. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10

Does anyone have any suggestions why this happens and what to do about it apart from logging out/in?
