That is precisely what was supposed to happen.  Let me remind you of 
something you wrote:

You are using the integrated clipboard support, or at least claiming to. 
  The integrated clipboard support is a replacement for xwinclip and you 
*cannot* use both -clipboard and xwinclip at the same time.  So, you 
must have something wrong with your command line.  Check /tmp/XWin.log 
to see what command line was used to start XWin.

FYI, the XFree86-xwinclip package was renamed to xwinclip.  You'll 
notice that the description of the XFree86-xwinclip package says 
"removed package".
