Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: tomboy

When using middle-click to attempt to paste into a hyperlink, Tomboy
closes the note. It appears to be doing so to open the hyperlink in its

When the hyperlink is a tomboy note-link, it closes the clicked note and
opens the linked note.

When the hyperlink is a URL, the tomboy note closes, and a URL is
attempted in the default web browser

Reasoning: The above described behaviour is an annoyance to those who
have become accustomed to using middle-click for highlight-buffer
pasting in a text-editor scenario. Additionally, IMHO there is no need
to close the note in this process.

To replicate:

1. Create a note in Tomboy.

2. Enter a note-link or URL.

3. Use the middle button on a mouse (or I presume equivalent action), to
click on the URL.

Occurs in both 0.4.1 (edgy) and 0.6.0 (feisty)
