Default Bug#578153: Multiple clipboards and cut and paste buffers in X11

Package: general
Severity: normal

This report covers problems with multiple cut and paste buffers
due to multiple clipboards being used in X11 applications.

Problems include: being unable to paste data copied from an X11 application
into a console mode application.

Inconsistent and confusing copy and paste operations using the mouse, due to
menu copy operations not matching the mouse selections and clicks.
(The middle button paste does not match the Menu: Edit, Paste in program
menus. Likewise the dragover copy, does not match the Menu: Edit, Paste in
program menus).

Copying information from a KDE application (such as konqueror), does not
allow a corresponding paste into an non-KDE application (neither the dragover
and click copy mechanism, nor the Menu: Edit, Copy, Menu: Edit, Paste
facilities enable the data to be copied). (I am not sure whether this is
window manager specific, but it is certainly a problem if I am using icewm.)
