I was really annoyed by the default X copy/paste settings in KDE as
well.  My problems were fixed by configuring Klipper, the KDE clipboard
manager.  Right-click on the clipboad icon oon your KDE panel and select
"Configure Klipper".  My annoyances were fixed by setting the
"Synchronize contents of the clipboard and the selection" option.  That
option seems to make copy/paste consistant across different GUI
toolkits, while the alternative seems to make a distinction between
normal X "copy on select" clipboard behavior and KDE explicit 
"Edit menu->copy" behavior.

I'm not sure if this option is the root of your problems, too, but it
sounds like it could be.  It certainly resulted in inconsistant
clipboard behavior for me.  Or rather, I guess it was *consistant* but
certainly not consistant with the way X behaves normally.

HTH,
noah
