    Q:  Mouse cut/paste suddenly no longer works.

    A:  Make sure that mouse reporting is actually turned off since
        killing some editors prematurely may leave the mouse in mouse
        report mode.  I've heard that tcsh may use mouse reporting
        unless it otherwise specified.  A quick check is to see if
        cut/paste works when the Alt or Shift keys are depressed. See

Unfortunately I can't find doc/refer.txt or find any other information
about how to turn off mouse reporting.
