Consider the fact that the visible clipboard is a *feature* that lets
people know they are carrying around a selection they never dropped. Are
you surprised by the fact that the car keys you are carrying haven't
disappeared from your pocket?

Also consider that the "Movable Clipboard" doesn't otherwise affect
Nautilus by definition, so no special harm can be done by carrying
around the icon.

You misunderstood me, the popup dialogue is unneeded so should not be
there. It should work exactly as Ctrl-V.
