Package: vim
Version: 2:8.0.1453-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

In previous versions of vim I used 'grep -n' to find out in which line matches
are. Then I marked the line numbers, enter Vim pressed the middle mouse
button followd by 'G' to jump to that line.

Now vim just inserts the contens of the middle mouse button immediately
without being in insert mode. After inserting it is in normal mode
again. May be this was intented as an feature, but I want to switch it

Many thanks
Christian Huebschle
