You are essentially making your 3 button mouse a 2 button mouse then. In
this scenario you click both buttons at once to get the affect of the
third button. You may need to set -emulate3buttons.

My guess on the OP's problem - sounds like a misunderstanding of how
copy/paste works, since ctrl-c/ctrl-v is not used for copy/paste in xterm.
Have you tried pasting with the middle mouse button? If that solves your
problem, realize that the various X applications may have their own
methods and you need to discover how to do it properly for each.
