If I type text into the "To:" address it is then impossible to use
the mouse to paste additional text into the box.  I use the
mouse to select text from the email body and when I click
back on the To: address the entire text of the To: address
box is selected. I then click where I want to paste and
click the middle mouse button and nothing happens.

The mouse copy/paste should always work.

I see the same behavior.  When the focus goes back to the address entry, the selected text in the message body gets deselected, so there's nothing to paste when you click the middle mouse button.  Ctrl-C while the text is selected and Ctrl-V with the cursor back in the address entry still work.

It appears to be the native behavior of GtkCellRendererText, which is what Balsa uses for the address entry.  Perhaps there's a way to catch the focus-in event and copy the selected text to the clipboard before it gets deselected.  But getting around Gtk's native behavior can be tricky, with unintended consequences!
