Perhaps... i'm finding that whatever the last bit of text i highlighted was, not necessarily copied, is what will get copied, so a quick remedy is to highlight a bit of empty text or just refrain from highlightin text (such as web urls, when you double click to highlight all and hit delete, as i do)

This is actually a pretty cool feature of linux.

You can highlight text and then paste it by hitting the middle mouse button(not sure where that would be on the trackpad).

The other two things that I like are that you can use alt + left click to move a window and alt+right click to resize it.

Did you find a solution?

Same exact problem here. Just got my Mini running Ubuntu. Randomly, in the middle of typing, I'll get a URL that I previously visited perhaps magically show up.

I don't think I'm actually causing it by hitting either the trackpad or the keyboard by accident. I'm especially conscious of that scenario now and try to avoid it.

I have determined that it's not something in the clipboard as you mention --- it's something that I have highlighted at some point.

I double click in the browser's url field frequently to type a new address to navigate. It appears that the url that has been highlighted is what is being randomly pasted while I am typing something else.

Very annoying.

I certainly am - and googled to find this description. It seems to happen in the middle of typing, and it copies in something highlighted or previously copied. The text copied in can be pretty lengthy, a hundred characters at least. At first I thought I might be hitting something strange due to the rearrangement of the keyboard, or accidentally hitting the trackpad. After watching it carefully, I don't think I am, but I leave myself open to that possibility. I tried to find out if there were any mouse gestures (trackpad gestures) for paste, or some key combination I wasn't considering, but haven't found anything like that.

Use syndaemon to suppress tapping when typing:

System -> Prefs -> Sessions
Startup Progs tab
Add
syndaemon -i 4 -d -t -K

Then Alt+Fn+S:
syndaemon -i 4 -d -t -K

Interesting -I'm going to have to look into this further.

Thanks for the information. I have the same problem. I wonder if there's a way to disable this specific feature?
