Same for me. I don't now to what degree this community is
concerned with linux but this feature would be great in terms of
consistency and usability with gnome and linux in general.
I'm on Build 2058 (ST2 alpha) now and the behaviour is different from the example above:
- selecting
- pasting (middle click)
So only the first character is passed to the clipboard.
Please fix this little annoyance to make Sublime Text 2 even more OS independant.
Thanks for your great work
