Yep; that comes under "cut" (or "kill", in Emacs terminology).
Most of XEmacs' "deletion" operations (e.g. C-w, C-k) save the deleted
text on the kill-ring (similar to a clipboard, but it keeps a history
of previous values, not just the last value).
thanks for clarifying this.
i'm working with an engineer at sun microsystems on this he is seeing this.
"I did play with this a bit and found that acroread is doing something
with the GDK_SELECTION property and xemacs is also looking at this
property. I used truss -ulibX11: -p <pid> to see what X11 calls are
being made and saw both acroread and xemacs busy doing something. Then,
using the man pages for XGetWindowProperty() the third argument is the
property atom. xlsatoms lists this as GDK_SELECTION."
i've trussed the process myself and can provide them and cores when
xemacs crashes if this would be helpful.
i've also built xemacs 21.4.19 without Motif and with GCC and i'm unable
to recreate this issue. i'm going to build with suns compiler to see
what happens. though now when i compile in MULE support without motif
the gui crashes but that's another issue.
