I think I have another way to reproduce it, though it's not 

1) install windows firefox 1.5
2) in windows firefox, select some html text and do Edit/Copy
3) in wine, do something that uses the clipboard, e.g.
in wine/dlls/user/tests, run   wine user32_test.exe.so clipboard
or run wine's notepad and try to use 'find'.
Sometimes if you have +clipboard set, you'll see
trace:clipboard:X11DRV_CLIPBOARD_QueryAvailableData Type 4,Format 32,nItems 14,
Remain 0
before the error.  Most of the items returned are atom 0, which is invalid,
and causes the BadAtom error later in XGetAtomNames.

4) To get a stack backtrace, do
WINEDEBUG=+synchronous winedbg user32_test.exe.so clipboard
This should yield something like this trace from wine notepad:
  3 0x7f231cea _XError+0xf4 in libx11.so.6 (0x7f231cea)
  4 0x7f23229e _XReply+0x185 in libx11.so.6 (0x7f23229e)
  5 0x7f212c7d XGetAtomNames+0x131 in libx11.so.6 (0x7f212c7d)
  6 0x7f315cfd X11DRV_CLIPBOARD_InsertSelectionProperties+0x17b(properties=<register
not in topmost frame>) [/home/dank/wine/dlls/x11drv/clipboard.c:1788]
in winex11 (0x7f315cfd)
  7 0x7f3182ae X11DRV_CLIPBOARD_UpdateCache+0x3e6(lpcbinfo=<register
not in topmost frame>) [/home/dank/wine/dlls/x11drv/clipboard.c:1911]
in winex11 (0x7f3182ae)
  8 0x7f3187a8 X11DRV_IsClipboardFormatAvailable+0x28(wFormat=0x1)
[/home/dank/wine/dlls/x11drv/clipboard.c:2498] in winex11 (0x7f3187a8)
  9 0x7f6c30f9 IsClipboardFormatAvailable+0x25(wFormat=0x1)
[/home/dank/wine/dlls/user/clipboard.c:583] in user32 (0x7f6c30f9)

As near as I can tell, sometimes windows firefox under wine
returns bogus atoms when another wine app asks it what types it
supports in the clipboard.

I'll attach a patch that works around it for me by simply
ignore atom 0.  This is not likely to be a full fix if it's even
right at all, but I think it helps me.
