Should we open a new bug report for this?

This report is fine.  The omission to copy to PRIMARY looks intended, because 
when text is read-only and cut acts like copy, text is copied to PRIMARY.

"intended" ? If it is intended, which is its usefulness?

If one wants to move text from a place to another, this doesn't work using the mouse and 
the "cut" icon on the tool-bar...

1. select the text with mouse-1 (dragging over the text)

This should already put the text in PRIMARY.

2. click the "cut" icon on the tool-bar: the text is removed
3. now move the mouse pointer where you want the text to reappear
4. click mouse-2 to paste: nothing happens

So, newly, which the usefulness of the above "intended" omission?

I wonder if there is some thought behind this we don't see.


Does it work if you use C-w instead of cut?

C-w and C-y work as expected. C-y works also if used at step 4 above. It is with the mouse and tool-bar "cut" icon that it doesn't work..
