Description of problem:
After upgrading to 7.2 I found that I was no longer able to cut and paste from
abiword or opera into an xterm.  Pasting from mozilla, ical, and gnome config
tool all work fine.  I can paste from xterm to any gui.  Also I can paste from
abiword or opera into gvim and then from there into xterm.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.higlight text in opera or abiword
2.try to paste into xterm

Actual Results:  nothing

Expected Results:  text pasted at command line

Additional info:

To copy and paste from abiword, you have to select the text and then use copy
from the menus or toolbar.  Doing that, it works for me.

funny, not for me.  I tried what you suggested in AbiWord and Opera and 
neither worked pasting into a xterm.  This problem occurrs on three different 
machines.  I have recently read that there was a similar problem in KDE and 
that it was due to the two different clipboards in X and Qt.  Could this be 
the problem?

Works for me in our current releases pasting to xterm and konsole -- ISTR there
was a bug with the qt clipboard, but that should be fixed in Red Hat Linux 7.3
