What can vnc do with the clipboard? As far as I found, currently nothing but
correct me if I'm wrong.

My suggestion is if the vncviewer focus is changed, the clipboard should be
copied in the same direction.

Hoever, since X11 has a text only clipboard, if either the viewer or the
server is X11, the clipboard copy should only copy the text.

And yes, I've had various troubles with automatic clipboard copy on pc based
X11 servers so please make the clipboard copy configurable, at least give
the option to turn it off.

btw. is there any development to the core vnc?
