That was one of the first things I noticed too. Maybe those of us
who rely on the old-style X11 paste buffers are becoming fewer and
fewer as the years go on. Might want to report it at
https://code.google.com/p/gerrit/issues/list if it's not already
there, and maybe it'll get fixed in the next upgrade we do.

Yep, the above-mentioned X11 text clipboard breakage basically
convinced me to spend even more time in Gertty. Not only does the
latest release have it's own kill ring (copy/paste), but I can also
use tmux's copy and paste features as well. Less time touching the
mouse means more efficient reviewing for me!
