I'm sorry.  Daniel Jensen was on the right track with his
patch but I managed to screw it up with the one I applied.

I mistook the problem as being that `x-get-selection' didn't
exist on W32 (in fact, `x-get-selection-internal' appears to
be the function that doesn't exist).

So I have applied a new patch.  Please try it.
