Now that you brought it up, clipboard in wine does have some limitations. e.g.
when a process calls OpenClipboard(hwnd), Windows doesn't seem to care if the
hwnd is owned by a thread of the calling process. A process doesn't even have
 to have a window in order to grab the clipboard and put something on it. It
 can just use the desktop window. Not so with wine.

Although I never fully understood the inner working of Wine's clipboard
 implementation, I did try messing with it to see if I could overcome the 
limitation - with very limited success:-)
