What windows teaches you to do:
1. Select text to copy

Convert to the 'X11 way':
1. Select text to copy
2. Select text to replace
3. Btn2 click

Reformatting it doesn't change that you're using the clipboard on the
Windows side, and selections rather than the clipboard on the X11 side, and
apparently surprised that they don't work the same way.

Use the clipboard on both sides, it works the same way on both.

dunno - I think you better not try ctrl-c/ctrl-v stuff in an xterm.. ;)
