Okay, it seems to not function in gtk-3 using applications? Though it does work in Firefox.

Well, this seems to be a regression. Could reproduce the issue that instant paste does not work on gtk3 application.

I have replaced the XSendKey event with XTestFakeKeyEvent. See otherwise http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7819871/sending-xkeyevent-to-gtk3-applications for more details.

This way the gtk3 applications accept the sent keys as well.

Ready for testing in daily ppa when following build https://code.launchpad.net/~diodon-team/+archive/daily/+recipebuild/107568 is done.

summary: - auto-paste doesn't work in gnome-terminal in Oneiric
+ auto-paste doesn't work on gtk3 applications

It appears that I encountered this error again, however it happens whether auto-paste is selected or not.
My shortcut is <Ctrl><Alt>V, but nothing happens.
I tried in several applications' text boxes, including Chromium and Firefox.
I also tried very fast (see bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/diodon/+bug/1174342), but the menu doesn't appear.

This has nothing to do with this issue. Please try out new version 1.3.0 http://esite.ch/2015/02/21/a-stability-release-diodon-1-3-0/ and if it still doesn't work please open a new bug report. Thanks.
