If you select some text in X windows, then middle-click the browser window in a non-link area, the browser attempts to interpret the pasted text as a URL and attempts to navigate to said URL. So if I select the text "Some fields initialized from your user-agent" and middle click on the browser window in some blank space, the browser tries to navigate to "http://some%20fields%20initialized%20from%20your%20user-agent/"
You weren't clicking in a text box, were you? If so it's a bug, if not, it's a usefull feature. I like being able to paste URLs directly on the browser window without having the clear the location bar (which would, in turn, clear the "clipboard"). As for attempting to interpret non urls as urls, the location bar does the same thing. It's the user's responsability to input a valid URL. Reccomending "invalid" status.
This is correct behaviour. If you pasted on a text field, that would just paste the text and not try to load anything. Marking invalid.
