I was running klipper, but I had not fiddled with the settings. After your
suggestion I made a few changes, and now I can paste using the key combos.
I can't say exactly what I changed, because I can't seem to get it back to
the errant configuration.  At least not without restarting X.  

I've been having another problem since I changed the klipper settings.  Now
when I paste, I often lose focus in the notebook, and the only thing I have
found that gives it back is to click with the mouse.  That was the whole
reason for my not using button 2 in the first place.  I don't like taking
my hands of the keyboard.  If I could find a way to code button 2 into a
key chord, I would be quite happy.

Strange that Klipper fixes that - I think; sort of.  Perhaps it has to do
with what is in the buffer Shift+Insert is pulling from?  

I've been told by WRI techsupport that new and wonderful things are in the
works regarding the FrontEnd.  No one is saying much more.
