Thanks. I tried that and found that it didn't make any real difference,
so it maybe isn't an issue of the text properties.

I looked at the code for the x-selection-value function, and found that
it is checking both the X Clipboard and the X Primary selection text,
and that this can be controlled by the x-select-enable-clipboard and
x-select-enable-primary variables. Since I almost always want to use the
Primary selection, I set this in my .emacs and have found great
improvement:

(setq
  x-select-enable-clipboard nil
  x-select-enable-primary t)
