It sort-of works, although it's definitely finiticky. After selecting
your text, try left-clicking in another output region of the notebook,
to get the focus into the editing portion of the window, before middle
clicking in the cell you want. I've had moderate success with this
method, thanks to a tip from Brian Granger (see this  recent thread
on his g+ page about Copy/Paste functionality).
