Middle mouse button action

At the momen it's mapped to paste. However i want to disable that feature, want to make it autoscrolling like windows.

It seems to be like that in every WM although i'm trying to disable it in gnome specifically.

Anyone know how I disable it?

Well, on my Debian machine with XFree86 (I don't know if the settings are the same with I use the following lines in my XF86Config-4:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/psaux"
        Option          "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"
        Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
        Option          "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"
        Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"
I know that it isn't much help... but it works for me.
