I have been using autocutsel in my xstartup in Xvnc:

exec /usr/bin/autocutsel &

I used to be able to copy/paste between Windows and VNC, but not anymore. 
It also seems that in Gnome on Ubuntu I cannot copy/paste between an XTerm 
window in VNC and an XTerm outside of VNC.  Copy/paste within VNC is 
working fine between Firefox and XTerm and even with Windows XP in Virtual 

What else should I try?

Thanks in advance.
