Copy-Paste doesn't work if the source is closed before the paste

Bug Description


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.

This bug pisses me off, and its unacceptable for a modern operating system to suffer from crap like this.
