Another thing, which is less a bug, but more of a nice-to-have:  I've 
gotten used to highlighting and then dragging text in terminal.  This 
is like a short-cut of copy & paste.  I see that in TextMate you can do 
the same gesture except it results in CUT & paste.  The thing is that I 
just about never want to do cut & paste, but I need to copy & paste 
little bits of text A LOT (variable names, types, anything that's 
visible that I want to reuse).  I'd like to have an option to switch 
this select-text-drag to copy instead of move.
