we are getting to here

, each time I type CTRL-C, and apparently sometimes putting null or an
empty string into the selectiondata.set_text() method, because Free
Clipboard Viewer 3.0 shows NO "Text" fragment on the clipboard
sometimes.
If I watch Free Clipboard Viewer 3.0, it seems I get a random selection
of various fragment types present and not present, each time I copy to
the clipbpard.
I'm putting this into the ticket in Launchpad.
