> Here's what I do:
> To copy
> Cx) In X11 - point with left button, hold down button and sweep
> Cm) In Mac App - Same as above but use Cmd-C to copy
> To paste
> Px) In X11 - (point where relevant) and middle click mouse
> Pm) In Mac - create entry point with left mouse button and Cmd-V
This has happened again to me. I've re-loaded my coding above to help
What's happening is:
Cuts from X11 using Cx are pasted correctly in the X11 app world - but
Pm supplies old contents
Cms are pasted correctly into both worlds.
Changing the Cx source to a different X11 app (tried xterm, emacs and
nedit) makes no difference
- pasting in the X11 world has the last paste contents but it still
doesn't change the paste contents in the Mac world.
Using Cmd-c or the menu option in place of Cx in the X11 app makes no
Typing pbpaste in the xterm after a Cx (or a Cmd-C) yields the old
echo "new contents" | pbcopy
loads the paste board in both worlds.
Essentially what seems to be happening is that the copy - presumably
through the X11 server - has stopped talking
to the Mac world.
