I have talked many times about how xwinclip's functionality needs to be 
rewritten in order to work somewhat properly.  Check the mailing list 
archives for details.

xwinclip is opensource.  Not quite sure what you meant there.

Although, others have in the past released their own modifications to 
xwinclip, some of which have not been incorporated into xwinclip.  You 
can search the mailing list archives for some of those versions and see 
if you find one that works better for you.
