- I select an absolute file name with the mouse in a terminal
- I want to open this file in a running emacs: ctrl+x ctrl+f
- Emacs mini buffer: contains "~/...."
- I enter ctrl-a ctrl-k to delete "~/...."
- I want to paste with middle button
- "~/...." gets inserted, not the file name of step one.
How can I stop emacs from overwriting my text I selected with the mouse?
