xfree crash

Hijack! Ooops, sorry; Hi Jack.

	I *think* I reported the same bug a while ago.

	I believe it is due to XWin crashing when it tries to copy a big block of
text into the clipboard. Try a small document, and it'll probably work
instead. Alternatively, if you MUST copy a huge block of text, do it one
small block at a time.

	I'm not a cygwin developer, but I am in the process of putting together a
development environment to investigate this and other strange things I've
noticed. Sadly though, as I have very little time these days, it might be a
while before I arrive at any result.
