Unfortunately my computer becomes quite unusable after that. X process
jumps to 100% CPU usage, XEmacs process jumps to 40% (it's a SMP system).

`interprogram-cut-function' is a variable declared in Lisp.
`interprogram-paste-function' is a variable declared in Lisp.
`x-selection-strict-motif-ownership' is a built-in boolean variable.
The values are the same for "xemacs -vanilla". Setting the last variable
to "nil" doesn't fix the problem.
BTW: The problem is the same with Ctrl-W (kill-region).
