So in summary after copy or cut, I am never sure whether shift-insert

neither works properly.

Anyone else? Any suggestions? This is one of those minor annoyances
that is extremely frustrating at times.

Using Oracle and Netscape we had to use Abiword in-between to cut &
paste at all. Copy from Netscape, paste to Abiword, copy from Abiword,
paste to Oracle. What a royal pain. It was explained to me, but I have
forgotten the reason. Linux will never make it to Joe Lunchbucket's
computer until it becomes resolved, and this problem goes back a LONG
way. It was 6 years ago when we were doing that procedure to copy, cut &
paste.  I feel your pain. :) Ric

Cut and paste in Linux is the single most frequent cause for me lapsing
into extremely unladylike language. I've had to replace dozens of melted
keyboards. And the melt ripples on the face of my monitor are annoying.
It may be time to get a replacement. Cut and Paste in Linux stinks on
hydrogen ice.
