Thanks, Jon.

-noclipboard did not make a difference.

Running xinit instead of startxwin consumes 0% CPU time.  The X
desktop has a single xterm which I could play with.

I attached the log output from startxwin with -logverbose 3.  I opened
and closed one xterm before existing xdg.  Clipboard is disabled.
