Mouse selection overeagerness

Mouse selection in both xfce4's Terminal and the FreeBSD console is a 
bit touchy.  Select a block, click in another window to paste, and... 
it's now highlighted a block in the target window.  Or maybe a whole 

Mouse speed and click-to-focus are fine the way they are, it'd just be 
nice if there was a way to reduce this selection oversensitivity.

Is there a place to increase the threshold that defines when a selection 
is taking place?  Somewhere between moused and syscons, maybe, but a 
cursory [hah] look at their man pages didn't show an adjustment.
