I heard a friend mention something like this as well - and he also dug
out some information that the X clipboard isn't really copy-paste - its
select-paste. He discovered it after selecting a bunch of text, hitting
control+c, closing the program, and hitting control+v.

Turns out, closing the program wasn't such a good idea.
