Highlighted text disappears when I click on it

I know this isn't exactly a renpy question, but in editra, when I highlight and then click on the highlighted text, it deletes it. Why is that happening? It doesn't happen in other word editors, and it's very annoying and dangerous.

I recall seeing some similar behavior before, however I can't repeat it on purpose, not sure if it' was a glitch in the editor or something in my operating system

I believe this is a copy and paste 'feature' - highlight a section of text, click on it, it gets replaced by your clipboard.
