Ah! That works! Thank you.
But there are still a couple problems.
1) Shift-Insert is a huge improvement, but is still a little
clunky. I'd like to tie it to Shift-Ctrl-Y, but when I
press CTRL-h Shift-Insert, the *Help* window cryptically
reports, "T runs the command self-insert-command". What
command is actually running?
2) How can I go the other way--copy from emacs in a terminal
to the Windows clipboard?
