I agree with Lukas, the default behavior should be to select the entire
address when the address bar is clicked on.

I also see nix4me's point.  I think it's important to note that, from my
understanding, there are two clipboard's in gnome:  the first is when you
highlight text, which I believe Xorg is responsible for, the second is when
you use CTRL+{c|x}(Edit->Cut/Paste) which I believe gnome is responsible
for.    A potential solution is to let a middle click on the address bar to
replace the current address with the address in the Xorg clipboard.  While,
a left-click would select the entire address which would allow people to use
CTRL+v to replace the address.
