They work as designed. They're intended to be separate. The middle click
paste buffer is the 'junior', the ctrl-c / ctrl-v paste buffer is the
'senior'. Anything you cut/copy with ctrl-c / ctrl-v will overwrite
anything that's currently in the middle click buffer, but not vice
versa. That's how it's intended to work. The behaviour is always
consistent if you understand the relationship between the buffers.
