By "paste command thingy" do you mean insert+slash? When speakup says
cut it is really just copying. The text is still on the screen after you
use speakup's cut&paste. What version of speakup are you using? I can't
remember exactly when c/p was put in, but it didn't work in some older
versions of CVS speakup.
