I thought this was fixed in Lion, but I believe it used to be the case that OS X terminal didn't support mouse. Check out iTerm 2 instead.

Thanks :) That seems to have done the trick. Now I just need to get my color scheme working right in iTerm. Still pretty new to Mac OS. I'm really a Linux guy.

I always used terminal vim when on Linux, but after I got a macbook (from work - I'd never buy one), I'm pretty happy with MacVim. Give it a shot.

Pretty much everything works out of the box as with the terminal version, you just get a few usability improvements (OS-integrated clipboard, mouse selections create vim selections and vice versa, etc).

iTerm 2 and Homebrew really make OS X a lot more bearable for me

Switching to zsh and oh-my-zsh has helped a lot too

> OS X terminal didn't support mouse

It does not, you have to use the MouseTerm SIMBL plugin.
