Re: [Xwin 1.7]: copy from rxvt-x to windows application does not work

If I run rxvt-x (1.5 or 1.7) with Xwin (1.7), when I select something
in the terminal output and then type Ctrl-V in any Windows
application, this does not work. Some application say that the
clipboard is like corrupted. In general, if I type Ctrl-V several
times, after a while, the text is pasted (after 4-5 times of Ctrl-V).

If I use Xwin 1.5 or rxvt-native it works fine (with rxvt version
either 1.5 or 1.7).

Am I the only one with such a problem?

No, given the amount of Cygwin/X clipboard-related hate-mail on this list, I think you are probably normal. :-)

There is an important clipboard related fix, and lots of improvements to clipboard error logging and debugging scheduled to make an appearance in the 1.6.x X server. I plan to do another iteration looking at clipboard problems after that is available, so if you still have problems then, please post a report, attaching the /var/log/Xwin.0.log.
