Bug Description

When selecting text in a gtk app with a mouse in a host,
each guest running in that host gets many system log / journald log messages:

"localhost spice-vdagent[1039]: vdagent_clipboard_data: sel_id=1: no corresponding request found for type=1, skipping"
which may be repeated over 100 times.

Key points:
1 The messages appear immediately in all guests that are running at the time;
2 It only happens when selecting text in gtk apps (eg gedit, mousepad, zim) not qt apps (eg kwrite).
3 Doesnt happen when select text in a guest - the messages dont appear in the host or in other guests.

VMs are Xubuntu 22.04 with the -hwe kernel linux-image-6.5.0-28
running on 2 different Xubuntu 22.04 hosts, one with
the -hwe kernel linux-image-6.5.0-28-generic
and one with the standard linux-image-5.15.0-105-generic.
