I use Metacity and gnome 2.4 too, I remarked the problem previously  
with gnome 2.2.

I open a compose window with say 'reply'.
I enter some data in the compose window.
I move the cursor on a line in the middle of the entered text with the  
up/down/home arrows.
I open an xterm with some data I want to paste in the compose window.
I use left click then drag the cursor to select an area in the xterm.
I come back to the compose widow, the cursor is still at the same  
I middle click the mouse to paste the buffer.
The text is inserted at the end of the previously entered text.

Sometimes, depending of what you have done before, it is not pasted at  
the end but at an other place but not at the cursor place.
To have the text inserted at the right place, I have to left click  
where I want the text to be inserted.

BTW : while writing this message I have done exactly the same test with  
gedit ... And I've found the same problem. so maybe the bug should be  
reassigned to gtk+2?
