This -could- be the underlying cause of bug #7986.
This is a general issue that seems to be independant of any individual program.
Pick any text field that supports copying, copy some text. Paste into any other
text field. It works. Close the source window or program. Paste now does
nothing. The example I just verified this with is gedit to gedit. Also occurs
with openoffice to gedit.

In some cases, like OpenOffice and Firefox, simply closing the source window
won't cause the problem. It only happens if the entire program is closed down.
