gedit is pasting some content (possibly clip board) into text being edited without warning me. And this happens when I am editing source code (*.f90 files) making it very dangerous.
This used to happen within Linux system previously.
Recently I found the copy of the same text in four spots on one of my source files but this text was from an email that I typed in Outlook of a Windows machine. I assume this happened because I access Linux from this Windows machine as virtual system.
This is bizarre, dangerous and very annoying.
But why is it happening?
Does anyone know what might be the source of the problem?
Is it likely that I am touching the mouse in a weird way to make it think that I want to paste something? If so what could that be?
