clipboard interchange not working

No responses... :-(
It's amazing how big of a pain this is. Copying stuff from a unix window
to my windoze-based email client is now impossible.
Is *anyone* else using a similar configuration? (winxp viewer, solaris
server) Is anyone else using WinXP client with any unix and *able* to
use the clipboard sharing? It would be nice to hear a success story, if
no one else seems to be experiencing this same woe.
I've tried this with the tightVNC viewer (win32) and run into the same
problem, so I'm sort of suspicious of the server at this point. Or is
there some magical security/authorization setting that I need?

Subject: clipboard interchange not working
Just updated to 4.0 (after having used 4.0b4 for some time), and it
seems now that clipboard interchange is not working.
Server: Solaris 2.8
I've twiddled the settings in the client and it still doesn't work.
(I.e., the X clipboard and the windoze clipboard are independent.
Hilighting in an xterm doesn't overwrite the clipboard in windoze with
the selection, and copying text in windoze doesn't allow me to
middle-mouse-button paste in that same clipboard.)
Anyone else running into this?
