1. Open Writer or Calc window 
2. Open emacs or xterm  window,  write some random text.
3.Select this text (but DON'T use Ctrl-Insert or sth)
4. change focus to Calc or Writer window
5. push middle mouse button
So far this makes paste selected text into Calc window.

I tested it on two boxes.
1. Box with "ancient" configuration (fvwm, no kde or gnome)
2. laptop with xfce desktop
