There may be an odd bug here and there but copy and paste should be working
just fine between most applications. At least the X11 driver code should be
working correctly.

The only major issues that I'm aware of are coping and pasting OLE embedded
objects. That should be taken care of when Rob is finished his COM work.

IMO 633, 2382 and 5061 are not really copy and paste bugs. They are caused
by problems translating from windows data formats to linux data formats and
vice versa.

3486 is an edit control bug and not a general copy and paste bug.

4523 looks like an OLE bug. Have you tried with native ole32?  This bug
also suffers from the fact that we don't get notifications when an X app
changes its selection. The XFixes extension should help. I've starting
looking into this but just haven't found the time to finish it.
