Description of problem:
I have a weird problem with the clipboard in a gnome 3 session: selected and copied text (into the clipboard with ctrl+c) always overwrites geometrical objects (rectangles aso) if editing a libreoffice document:
That means: if copying text with ctrl+c (after selection) and then additionally copy some graphical object (with ctrl+c too), then if perform a pasting
with ctrl+v will always paste the older clipboard text entry and not the copied graphical object.
I found out that I can get rid of this effect by killing gpasted (/usr/libexec/gpaste/gpasted). After this, I can work with ctrl+c/ctrl+v as usual.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
gpaste version: gpaste-1.6-1.fc16.x86_64 (sorry, I forgot)
I can state more precisely my report: I found out that killing only once gpasted, in the following gnome3 session the described buggy copy/paste behaviour did no more appear!
I can additionally report that the clipboard contents even survived a system reboot or a logout (during the buggy copy/paste periods of gnome3 sessions I reported above)

I found out that gpaste always is installed together with
gnome-shell-extension-gpaste which I installed for testing purposes. I removed gnome-shell-extension-gpaste in the mean time by yum, but gpaste was not removed together with gnome-shell-extension-gpaste. Question: Can this be the reason for the described misbehaviour?
