Cut/Paste with USB mouse inoperative

I just switched from a regular mouse to a USB mouse wireless mouse.
The mouse works fine except that the cut/paste middle button feature is
inoperative. The scroll feature works correctly though. I removed all
references to 'mouse' in the /etc/rc.conf file and rebooted; however,
nothing changed.

I then tried to change mouse port from the default:

moused_port="/dev/psm0" to moused_port="/dev/usm0"

That did no help either. Is there anyway to get this to work?
