    provably correct ones :)"

    Unix clipboard now completely rewritten. All of these now work:

    *) Pasting to/from CLIPBOARD in text and richtext (including html)
    *) Pasting to/from PRIMARY in text/richtext incl html (make some text
    bold, italic, underline, select with mouse, do *not* hit copy, move
    somewhere else, click middle mouse button)
    * Extremely lazy posting of data to the X server which could be made
    even lazier still
    * Unicode aware text data on CLIPBOARD and PRIMARY

    Also cutting and pasting to say, Konsole or Kword now works via either
    CLIPBOARD or PRIMARY (any KDE app should work now actually), so I'll go
    close the bugs on copy&paste in bugzilla.
