This is very likely to be some sort of problem with the clipboard integration 

You might find that using the '-noclipboard' option works around the problem 
(at the cost of not being able to cut/paste between Windows and X apps).

An xserver log with '-logverbose 3' might shed a bit more light on what's 
going on.
