Personally, I disagree. I find the new behavior to be a significant
improvement. This way I can paste anything, multiple lines even, into
my shell, make adjustments if so needed and then deliberately execute
whatever is in the buffer. This also takes care of the occasional
accidental paste.

Since automatic execution is possible to activate via configuration,
as Daniel has shown, the defaults should be left as they are.
