I haven't been watching this entire thread but there is additional logging
code in the sources that I don't think have made it into an official 
release.  Also, I did fix a few bugs that could cause a crash when text
was copied from X.  Jay, have you tried building your own XWin32 from
the CVS sources?  If you have, then you could try using -logverbose 3
to get additional clipboard messages.
