There is a copy & paste history (klipper).
You can configure kwrite not to autocopy on mouse selection.
My kword (1.1pre-beta2) does not autocopy on mouse selection by
default and I found no way of configuring that. So it behaves like a
Windows program in this respect. I don't whether you are using a
different version or if that has changed in a newer version.
Furthermore I find that autoselection thing pretty handy. Everytime I
have to copy&paste something in Windows, I forget C-c. Then I'm quite
stunned because nothing gets inserted on C-v. :-)
