I use and develop Motif applications with text widgets and the cut/copy/paste feature is behaving oddly on Mac OS X 10.6.2. I am using the X11 installation that comes with Snow Leopard. What I find is that paste doesn't work at all if I enable syncing of the OSX pasteboard and the X11 clipboard (cut deletes the text, but paste never inserts anything). If I disable syncing, paste works within one process, but if I start up another process, paste doesn't work from one process to another unless I run xclipboard. Is this expected behaviour? I.e., does Motif rely on a clipboard manager for cut/copy/paste to work?
