Yes, it would be nice to be able to append text.
This middle mouse button business is not unique with Scribus. This is a 
strange behavior in Linux/KDE from one app to another. I find the middle 
mouse button quirky, so prefer to use Klipper, highlight the saved text, 
after which Ctrl-V should work OK.
