Copy-Paste problem in Linux Konsole


I'm facing trouble with Shift+Insert and Middleclick.
In xterm, both of above key combinations paste the copied text.
But in Konsole, Middleclick is pasting the recently selected text by Mouse whereas Shift+Insert is pasting the recently copied text using Edit->Copy menu or Control+C from other applications like Mozilla.

It seems there are two buffers for copy-paste in Konsole.
But I want only one buffer and both Shift+Insert, Middleclick should paste the recently copied text from anywhere by mouse or control+c.

pls help.

In Konsole, you should try Ctrl+Shift+Insert to paste the recently selected text.
