Bug#399319: d4x: "clipboard monitor" feature doesn't work

Package: d4x
Severity: important

This feature is supposed to show an "add new download" dialog as soon as I
copy the URL of some files (depending on their "extension") from other
applications, but it doesn't, despite it *is* activated in the settings.

Actually I upgraded from sarge to etch, where I used version 2.4.1 which
worked fine w.r.t. this feature.

1 - If I copy a URL from a terminal (e.g. urxvt), then manually call the
    "paste from clipboard" button, it steals and nullify the selection so
    that I don't have any more any selection to paste in !
    (looks like a race condition with selecting the URL in the dialog)
2 - If I do the same but from firefox, the selection is kept intact though
    I still have to call for the add dialog manually.
    (I know by experience that firefox is also stealing the selection
    sometimes -> here we have a selection war which firefox wins)
