xboard is using the PRIMARY clipboard.
This makes it work badly with other, more modern applications.
Please read http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/ClipboardsWiki
for details and rationale.
The correct way would be use the 'CLIPBOARD' clipboard and
*only* the CLIPBOARD clipboard to copy/paste positions.

PS I think that there are many short comings in the current
chess 'standards' to exchange chess data. I'm seeking to
start a discussion about this topic. Would you be
interested? If so, under what email address can I reach
you about that?
