If memory serves correct, it's:
select text to copy
place cursor where you want text to be pasted
At least, this is how most apps I've seen work. Gaim seems to be an
exception (Wingaim only probably). It's a little backwards at first, but
it's much faster than the Windowsesque:
place cursor where you want it pasted
or even the keyboard shortcuts
