My current understanding on this is that X11DRV_SelectionRequest() 
should only interfere with the clipboard if the desktop environment has 
a nosy clipboard manager that wants to know what's in the clipboard at 
all times.

debiant2 is running fvwm and thus should not have any such issue.

This is based on my analysis of user32:clipboard which was failing on my 
KDE desktop for this reason but did not fail on the TestBot VMs. 
user32:clipboard now has "counter-measures" which allow it to succeed 
everywhere. I have been distracted with other issues so I have not yet 
had time to look into the other clipboard tests. I suspect they have 
similar issues but since this failure happens on debiant2 it may be 

When you say you can reproduce the issue, is that in your regular 
desktop environment? Is it KDE?
