emacsclient and Mac OS's clipboard

I'm running the latest pretest from the "Emacs For Mac OS X" website 
(Emacs-pretest-24.0.95-universal-10.6.8.dmg) on Mac OS version 10.7.

If I launch Emacs in a standalone fashion (i.e. double-click on, the 
editor's kill ring and the OS's clipboard "communicate" with each other such 
that I can copy/paste back and forth between Emacs and other applications.

However, if I launch Emacs in --daemon mode and then fire up `emacsclient -c`, 
I find that the client's kill ring does not "communicate" with the OS's 
clipboard, and it's seemingly impossible to copy/paste between Emacs and other 
applications. A workaround is to use some intermediate text file, which I have 
open in say Emacs and TextEdit, but obviously that's not a great solution.

I'm hunting for a fix to this problem (if one exists) but am coming up short 
with google searches, et al.

Thanks for your help.
