question about clipboard behavior



Hi all,

I have a question about the standard clipboard.

Highlighting some text in an app, may it be firefox, thunderbird,
tomboy, whatever and then pasting it to an existing xterm with middle
mouse button works. However if you open a new xterm _after_ you
highlighted some text the previously highlighted text is not being
pasted to the new xterm.

There might be some some security concerns I might not be thinking of
but it's not the behavior I would expect from a user perspective. What's
actually going on there?
