By copying text I mean dragging mouse-1 (binded to mouse-drag-region)

By 'read only region' i mean that when I paste it using middle mouse button 
(binded to mouse-yank-primary) in read write buffer (for example *scratch*)

By "read-only" I mean region of text have property "read-only" and when I try 
to edit the pasted part i get "Text is read-only" in pasted part, while rest of 
the buffer remains read-write.

I suspect it is something to do with jabber-mode as I never saw that behaviour 
outside of it, I also noticed font-lock-face get copied too, even tho both of 
them are on yank-excluded-properties. Basically it looks like none of 
yank-excluded-properties gets removed when pasting via mouse yank
