The easiest way to test is to use a second instance of GIMP. Another
application that is known to work is the word-processor Abiword.

Here are some links that explain how the X clipboard is supposed to
be used:


GIMP passes image data in the PNG format and announces it using the
"image/png" mimetype identifier.

It definitely belongs into GTK+ in the long run. Perhaps it would be
good to start a GDK backend for MacOS X that is based on the GDK-X11
backend but deals with clipboard and other interoperability issues.
