Admittedly it is not always evident to determine if a given question is a "Vim question" or a Mac question".Thanks, Tony. There wasn't much info on disabling mouse functions, but I put

in my .gvimrc file and it seems to have gotten rid of all the problems I was having without disabling the mouse in useful ways. Specifically, I cannot now use the mouse to go to a different place in the text by clicking there (this was what didn't work before -- instead of just moving the cursor there it would select some text), but I can still click to select a word, move the mouse to select text (once it is in a place), and use Command-V, etc. to paste, delete and copy text which has been selected or for Command-V, text which is in the clipboard. Seems like the best of both worlds now as I'm happy to use the old vi commands to move the cursor (h, j, k, l, 0, $, etc.).
