Note that gnome-terminal isn't the only application that keeps the
primary selection when it is no longer highlighted. Mozilla, Opera
and Emacs all have the same behavior.
And I don't think this is a wishlist since there's a big and
unacceptable inconsistency: xterm throws the primary selection,
but doesn't clear the cut buffer. This leads to confusion, and
possible data corruption (for this reason, I would see it as an
important bug at least).
