It is x-cut-buffer-or-selection-value.

It is.

It returns the same text that I get when using the middle button, which is
definitely not the text selected in Evolution. If I hit the middle button
over a shell window or gvim or whatever immediately afterwards, I get the
correct text, only Emacs doesn't show it.

Hey, don't worry too much about this. I have already found that although I
can't see the reason for this, it works with the other combination of
software versions for Emacs and Evolution I wrote about. So I'll just
upgrade the system I'm using now sometime and things will probably be fine
:-)

Of course, if you are curious and you have further ideas, I'll be happy to
test some more.
