I just updated to XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-47 from -46, and now have two

1. Clipboard integration is weakened in both 'twm' and multiwindow. I
can copy/paste between X indows, but not between X and Windows (!).

2. Tk/tcl widgets fail. I run one remotely for local display, and then
see in the remote window:

X Error of failed request: BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request: 18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Atom id in failed request: 0x114
  Serial number of failed request: 370
  Current serial number in output stream: 372

(I had to type that in by hand because of problem #1)

I'm not complaining: cygwin-xfree86 is still a great product. I thought
this report might be helpful to the developers, if it's not just me.
