To reproduce do the following:
for i in `seq 500`; do echo "echo $i"; done > paste.txt
Select all (ggVG)
Now middle click to paste the commands into a terminal.
For me only the first 4096 bytes are pasted.
I'm guessing it's something to do with tty modes,
or the switching of modes as vim running on the
terminal can accept all the pasted info fine.
So what exactly is happening?

Pushing process into background
To temporarily stop a running process, press Ctrl-z. And then
to push it in the background (so that it keeps running) type
'bg'. To get it back to foreground later, type 'fg'.
You can test with this command `cat </dev/zero >/dev/null`
