Right -- this says that clipboard support isn't enabled.

Those are just warnings -- the clipboard thread is started.

Please provide the exact steps you use to test the clipboard operation,
and any messages or results that make you believe it doesn't work.
Hint: X has multiple selection buffers; the clipboard support synchronizes
what's called "primary selection"; some applications (e.g., Mozilla) use a
different buffer for their selection storage. It would also help if you
posted /tmp/XWin.log (instead of those screenshots).
