** Description changed:

  Install klipper, glipper, or parcellite
- This bug is an Epic Fail, because it's 2009 and still we do not *fully*
- support trivial things like copy/paste.
- Fortunately this works well in KDE.
  This -could- be the underlying cause of bug #7986.
  This is a general issue that seems to be independant of any individual 
  Pick any text field that supports copying, copy some text. Paste into any 
  text field. It works. Close the source window or program. Paste now does
  nothing. The example I just verified this with is gedit to gedit. Also occurs
  with openoffice to gedit.
  In some cases, like OpenOffice and Firefox, simply closing the source window
  won't cause the problem. It only happens if the entire program is closed down.
  When I copy (Ctrl + C, or right click and "Copy") text from somewhere
  and after that close the program where it is, the clipboard gets empty.
  This bug will happen in any application that doesn't comply with the 
clipboard specification from FreeDesktop.
