Bug#421504: klipper: Shift+Delete (as a keyboard shortcut for cut) does not work properly

Package: klipper
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-6
Severity: grave
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

Shift+Delete is a shortcut for cut like Ctrl+X but it does not work

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1) Configure Klipper to "Synchronize contents of the clipboard and the
2) Open a file editor like kate and enter the following three lines:


3) Doubleclick with your mouse on the first line to copy the line into
to clipboard.
4) Go to the end of the file (after the last line) and use the middle
mouse button to paste the clipboard into line 4. The result will be:


5) Go to the beginning of the second line and mark the whole line by
pressing Shift+Cursor down.
6) Press Shift+Delete to cut the line into the clipboard.
7) Go to the end of the file (after the last line) and press
Shift+Insert or Ctrl+V or the middle mouse button to paste the clipboard
into the last line. The result is:


But it should be:


The "bbbb"-line is lost, it's no longer in the file and also not in the

Additional information:
- Problem happens with Etch but not with Sarge.
- If the keyboard shortcut Shift+Delete is changed to something else
  containing Shift (e.g. Shift+Home) then the problem happens also. If
  it is changed to something else that does not contain Shift (e.g.
  Ctrl+Home) then it does not happen. So it seems that it is a general
  issue with the Shift key and Klipper.
- It happens even if the keyboard shortcut Shift+Delete is removed and
  if khotkeys is used to send a Ctrl+X when Shift+Delete is pressed.
