I've observed the following behaviour on a colleague's machine. I can't reproduce it myself. - JTN
PuTTY is set to paste on middle button. On this system, when the middle button is pressed, there's a chance that the Microsoft Intellipoint scroll pointer thing is activates (the pointer changes to a circle containing a dot and up/down triangles, and moving the mouse scrolls the window).
If the middle button is pressed and released quickly, there is no deletorious effect other than the appearance of this pointer.
However, if the middle button is held and then released part-way through a multi-line paste, the following occurs:
Alt-Tabbing away unwedges PuTTY, although the missing pasted characters never come through.
Could be a bug in the way we deal with press/release events?
