- Select a line of text from a web page, e.g. the line
  "mkdir /usr/local/apache" at the top of the specified page.

- Copy the selected text to the copy-paste-buffer (ctrl+C)

- Paste it in your command line window

- Note how the command is _executed_ in the window, obviously since
  the copied text includes a trailing linefeed

  This is a No Good, and could lead to disastrous results.
  A trailing linefeed should _not_ be included, since the user often
  wants to modify the command before executing it.
