Really?  Xterm and apps from that era don't touch
clipboard, I think.  This matters to me, since I use Xterm
as my day-to-day console.

Ideally, Wine apps would put stuff in the X select buffer
when they selected, and in X's clipboard when they "copy" or "cut".
If that's hard (and I suspect it is), putting stuff in both places
only on "copy" or "cut" is a fine compromise.
