When the terminal is in "mouse reporting" mode, and Shift is used to override this for clipboard operations, text is not reliably copied to the clipboard.

In particular, if the Shift key is released before the mouse button being used for selection is released, the copy operation does not happen -- the mouse release event is reported to the server instead.
