Good to know. This is actually pretty good: it can act like a security feature 
for when pasting copied text that could be dangerous, especially since I've 
disabled xfce4-terminal's Preferences->General->[ ] Show unsafe paste dialog

This is actually a (nice)feature. Thank you!

Now I have the choice of pressing C-c if I ever accidentally MMB paste 
multi-megabyte-line text onto the command line, rather than having each line 
executed (which I would previously prevent via unsafe paste dialog mentioned 
above)

Quite nice.
