XQuartz 2.3.3 (xorg-server 1.4.2-apple31) ... just upgraded to the
latest. No, alt-click doesn't work either. The strange thing is that
Parallels Desktop exhibits similar behavior. I've quit X11.app, and
restarted an xterm window, and now I can copy xterm -> OSX, but not
OSX -> xterm, and not xterm -> xterm. I noticed this starting within
Parallels about the time I got my new macbook pro and using the
migration assistant to set it up. I'm wondering if that somehow
affected the system-wide clipboard? Another thing I noticed is that
the perl module "Mac::Pasteboard" also stopped working for me around
the same time.
