ctrl+insert isn't a Linux thing.  It works in some (most?) Windows
apps, too.  As does shift+insert.

ctrl+insert seems to work on my system, whereas ctrl+c does not, nor
does select+right click+copy.  For now, this is an annoyance to me,
but at least I have a workaround until I wipe my system clean and
install Breezy when it's released.

I have Hoary installed on two machines - a laptop and a desktop.  This
problem only affects one of the two systems.  Go figure. :P
