Some apps set Primary Buffer with auto select

Bug Description

There are two buffers in — the Primary Buffer and the Clipboard Buffer, as described here:

But lots of programs, like x-chat or azureus, or any other (all are GTK-based, so I think, it is a GTK "feature") or even gnome-run dialog push a text into primary buffer even whet it's auto selected, like autocompletion in gnome-run or autoselect fo the servers in x-chat's server list.

Such behavior makes primary buffer unuseable, because autoselected text usually doesn't make sense, but corrupt primary buffer. The proper behavior, for my mind, is to push the text into primary buffer only with the user input like mouse selection.

Hello Customer

Now you can keep your preferred watch for very special occasions since you can choose the same observe for just a few hundreds of dollars and be dressed in it with confidence and security anywhere you go.
Make your order before the prices go up.

I just received my PN-20 (Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic), and I have to say I'm really impressed. I have ordered from quite a few replica sites in the past, and I always ended up sending the watch back disappointed. I hope this makes it into your customer comments section. I would recommend this site to anyone. Very prompt delivery, great prices and wonderful quality.
