Being a heathen I use a microsoft mouse. I like it much more than the magic mouse.

iTerm’s preference for middle mouse IS paste but clicking the tab bar kills and exits the tab. I can find no options to confirm this it is just gone.

I’m somewhat knackered being right handed but having to use left due to MS.
Operation would be vi paste at the cursor having accidently left the pointer in the tab bar. Bing Gone!
