-clipboard not working?

Weird: I just did cvs update on my working copy of the source in order to
look at this, and I cant find the code below even with find in files. Is it
in a part other than programs/Xserver/hw/xwin ? a search on that directory
for "winProcSetSelectionOwner" returns nothing. The code I see is:
	  if (!OpenClipboard (hwnd))
	      ErrorF ("winClipboardFlushXEvents - SelectionRequest - "
		      "OpenClipboard () failed: %08x\n",
		      GetLastError ());
	      pthread_exit (NULL);
is this a fix which is on its way? *hopes*

  /* Access the Windows clipboard */
  if (!OpenClipboard (g_hwndClipboard))
      ErrorF ("winProcSetSelectionOwner - OpenClipboard () failed: %08x\n",
              (int) GetLastError ());
      goto winProcSetSelectionOwner_Done;
