I am using a very vanilla XFree86 installation on fbsd
5.3. I am using ratpoison as my window manager.
If I highlight text in an xterm, it is immediately in
my buffer, and I can paste it into that xterm, or any
other xterm. Further, if I copy text in my web
browser, I can paste it into all my xterms.
However, I cannot take text that I copied in my xterm
and paste it into my browser (opera). Why is this ?
Why can I go in one direction (paste from opera into
xterm) but not the other (paste from xterm into opera)
