Opera Middle-Click Functionality

Just a handy hint to fix something which has bugged me for ages - if you middle click in Opera under Arch linux (and probably other distros), rather than scrolling, it tries to paste text and seems to end up searching for whatever's in your clipboard.

Luckily, this can be changed. Strangely, it's completely non-obvious.

Shift+Middle Click brings up a dialog which allows you to change your middle-click settings.
