Gnome2.. if it can't be a default, it's not worth being there at all..

I can verify that. Looks like a bug, you should probably file that.

True. X11 primary selection showing its limitations. Not a killer issue
these days, since practically all Gnome/Kde apps understand clipboard
selection correctly (I think Ephy or Mozilla has some kind of problem
with this, but I haven't been able to pin it down).

Regarding selection, btw.. Since the early Netscape days, it has been a
convention in X11 browsers that middle-button pasting text from the
primary selection within a browser window works as if you'd pasted the
text into the address bar and hit return - that is, if the text is a
URL, load it. I guess it's been a workaround for not having drag&drop,
but I've found it convenient. Ephy doesn't support it, I think it should
(especially as there is no other sensible function for middle-button
click within the browser window but not over a link).

Didn't Mozilla 1.4b just introduce something new regarding PAC files? Oh
yeah, failover. Anyway, you should be able to create a couple of scripts
that manage GConf /system/http_proxy settings according to a profile. I
don't think that functionality belongs in Ephy - Gnome as a whole should
probably take profiles a step further.
