I use LyX 2.0.0rc3 on Mac OS X. Like on other systems, it automatically maps middle-click to paste, which on my hardware leads to numerous accidental pastes of gobs of text.

Is anyone aware of a way to disable this behaviour?

This is nothing you can disable it in LyX, you need to configure your Window-System. On X-Window you may be able to map middle-mouse-click to something else, but I'm not sure of Mac OS X. –  adnc Apr 20 '11 at 7:07
    
Lyx is built on top of Qt, which handles translation of keyboard and mouse events into the form that Lyx understands. It should be possible to tell Qt to change how it handles middle-clicks, but this is outside what I know. I guess you will get a better answer on apple.stackexchange.com - if you do ask, it would be interesting for me if you posted a link to your new question here. –  Charles Stewart Apr 20 '11 at 9:02
    
This is definitely related to LyX. Nowhere in OS X does middle cick mean pasting. –  Philipp Apr 20 '11 at 14:31

Are you using native OS X version of LyX, or one which uses the X server? Paste with middle click is typically a feature of an X server, not an application. –  Jan Hlavacek Apr 22 '11 at 4:37
