Paste w/middle mouse button

I should clarify...  I did a little experimenting and the the OS seems to
behave as I expect.  For example, highlighting and pasting with the middle
mouse button between terminals works as expected.  It is Chrome that is
behaving differently.  When I installed 14.04 I decided to give Chrome a
good faith effort instead of Firefox.  I guess I spend so much time in the
browser I thought it was an OS issue.

So this is a Chrome question, not so much an OS question.  Even so, maybe
someone here has a solution.  I don't see anything in the Chrome settings
to change the cut/paste behavior.
