gvncviewer doesn't implement cut/paste buffer sharing/syncing

Bug Description

I'm connecting from a Maverick client to a Windows 7 VM (inside qemu-kvm) running on Lucid.

If I connect using xvnc4viewer (and run a utility called autocutsel to sync X's various selection/cut buffers), then I can copy from the VM inside the VNC viewer, and paste into native applications on the client, and equally, copy from native applications on the client and paste into apps inside the VM.

However, gvncviewer doesn't appear to implement cut/paste; I can't cut/paste in either direction.

gvncviewer should implement this.
