It should work that way but I haven't been able to build The GIMP to check
for ages now.
To be completely clear: Edit/Cut, Copy and Paste _ought_ to transparently
work between applications. The image-related KDE apps get this right and
when GIMP 1.3.x devel code is once again up and running on this system
I will ensure that it works properly in the GIMP too.
You are quite right that none of this costs _any_ significant resources
until it's actually used to do what the _user_ wants. Which means it
is unquestionably the Right Thing.
