I am using Debian Testing (Lenny). autocutsel version 0.9.0-1.

To reproduce:
1) Open two instances of leafpad and/or firefox (probably most GUI editors or browsers would work)
2) Write some text in a text field.
3) Select that text with a mouse.
4) Attempt to paste that text in a different window, using both the middle mouse button and Ctrl-V. middle mouse button works, but Ctrl-V does not.

To reproduce again:
1) Open two instances of leafpad and/or firefox (probably most GUI editors or browsers would work)
2) Write some text in a text field.
3) Copy that text by highlighting and pressing Ctrl-C.
4) Remove the highlight.
5) Attempt to paste that text in a different window, using both the middle mouse button and Ctrl-V. Ctrl-V works, but middle mouse button does not.

Autocutsel does work if the highlighted text is in an xterm, but I haven't found any other instances where autocutsel works as advertised.
