I've just observed something very interesting about this.
This happens for a window that's local to the cygwin X server. When I open a window on this server from a remote (linux) client via ssh -X, the problem does not appear!
- I sweep something onto my cut-buffer
- I can paste it into a linux window when the mouse cursor is anywhere on the screen.
- I can only paste it into a local cygwin xterm when the mouse cursor is directly over the target window.
- if I focus back on the linux window, I can paste the original string again (independent of the position of the mouse cursor).
Furthermore, I think I observed that the buffer gets *changed* when I moved the mouse from the linux window to the cygwin window.
I swept something, and could paste it into the linux window. Then, I focused on the cygwin with the mouse elsewhere. Pasting from the xterm cut buffer (or the "_" command) did not work. When I moved the mouse into the cygwin window, I could paste - but something else than I just swept got pasted!
