Bug Description

With the introduction of copy/paste on long-press it's now impossible to scroll through the history.

Steps to reproduce

1. Open terminal
2. Type a few commands, pressing enter after each one
3. Hold two fingers down and scroll back to reach a previous command

Expected behaviour

Should be able to scroll back and forward through history

Actual outcome

Copy/paste dialog appears, making history search impossible.

Can we perhaps detect one versus two fingers held down, and only trigger the copy/paste dialog when one digit is used, not two?
