This is unrelated. Apparently getclip is no longer compatible with
current cygwin. The cygwin native clipboard format has changed. New
format starts with a timestamp which is interpreted as data size by getclip.
BTW: I would suggest to start CYGWIN_NATIVE_CLIPBOARD format with a
version number that can be checked by external programs.
