Can someone please help me with this cut/paste buffer problem? Is it something unique to my setup, has anyone seen this problem before?

first of all, many thanks to all of you that helped debug my first problem,
that of needing to use 8bit mode to get the server to start.
Now I have the server running it is working as well as the old 3.3.2r2 version
and I am back to trying to sort out the problem of the cut/paste buffers not
working. This problem is nothing new, up till now I have had to use Autocutsel
to facilitate the cut/paste buffers but this doesn't work reliably (although
it is much better than not having it at all).
My problems with cut/paste started when I had to modify my xstartup file to
get vncserver to run correctly on Solaris7 platform. My xstartup file has the
'dtwm &' line commented out, instead I use '/usr/dt/bin/Xsession &'.
I made this change some time ago when I migrated my server onto a solaris7
machine. With this setting my CDE windows look reasonable, all the buttons
work, the colors look ok. The downside to using this sort of configuration is
that the native cut/paste support in VNC no longer works (or at least not for
Are there any users out there using a similar setup (i.e.
'/usr/dt/bin/Xsession &' in their xstartup) that have got the cut/paste
buffers to work without the need to have autocutsel running in the
thanks in advance,
