Cut & Paste problem between X windows


I have just installed Cygwin and the latest X package onto a new laptop and am having problems with cut & paste 
within X.  The problem is NOT between X and MS Windows, which I have not yet tried.

Any text within X-term or urxvt is highlighted correctly but when clicking the centre mouse button it is not 
pasted into either the same x-term or any other.

Initially I did a fresh install of of Cygwin 1.5 with the latest X server packages , but cut and paste did not 
not work, I therefore installed Cygwin 1.7 with the same Xserver packages but the problem still persisted. I 
currently have both 1.5 and 1.7 installed but am concentrating on 1.7.
Before changing the laptop cut and paste worked without a problem, unfortunately I no longer have the old laptop 
so cannot compare packages etc. 

The problem is not specific to any Window manager as it also happens without any window manager running, I am 
currently running WindowMaker but previously ran Openbox, which is my preferred window manager.
Has anyone experienced a similar problem ?  
The old laptop was a Dell Latitude D410 the new one is a Dell Latitude E4300.

If any further information is required please let me know what is required
