Hi all,
For anyone who has been following / looking at the clipboard issues, I have
found an interesting little test case. Using nedit, if you highlight a
selection, then press ctrl + c, then pasting into windows causes the 2
second hang (the paste option is available). Now, if you drop the selection
in nedit and select something again (it may be the same or different), then
DO NOT press ctrl+c, you can paste normally in any app. Is this behaviour
something to do with nedit setting different clipboard entries for the
selection and the actual clipboard? I know very little about X clipboard,
but it appears that XWin is handling the selection correctly, but not the
If you need a more detailed test case, ill write one up.
