Here is an example screen capture and repeatable bug of the clipboard 

Synopsis: Copy from Windows, highlight text in gedit, clipboard breaks 
(paste doesn't work). Proceed to copy from gedit and suddenly that text 
gets pasted. Sometimes it will just start pasting while a selection is 
being made.. ??
