Bug description:
  [ Impact ]

  I'm running LibreOffice on Ubuntu 19.10.

  In this environment, copy/cut/paste often fails.  Specifically, the
  paste command sometimes does not paste the text that was cut/copied
  most recently.  Instead, it pastes text that was cut/copied at some
  prior time.

  [ Test case ]

  1. Use use libreoffice writer/calc
  2. Copy text around
  3. Paste it and ensure it always work

  [ Regression potential ]

  Copy/paste won't work as expected, for non-text types


  I use LibreOffice Writer a lot, and I now see this problem very often, i.e. 
many times every day.

  There is some discussion of the problem here:

  Several posters there say that they are also using Ubuntu 19.10.

  Ubuntu 19.10 includes Mutter 3.34, which has a new clipboard manager:

  It seems like that could be related.
