[vile] Unable to cut/paste on RH linux.

This stopped happening for a short time, then started
happening again:

- Uanble to paste into xvile.
- Paste from xvile into any window from a remote
  host (i.e., via DISPLAY set from remote box)
  blows up with:

$ echo 'X Error of failed request:  BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Atom id in failed request:  0x197
  Serial number of failed request:  1004
  Current serial number in output stream:  1006

This is with 9.6j applied (i.e., everything matching
vile-9.6?.patch.gz) on virgin filesystem (i.e., rm -rf
with extract source).

Code built with:

    #!/bin/bash -vx

    export CFLAGS="-O2 -march=i686 -pipe"

    for i in tcap Xaw
        make distclean;

        ./configure                             \
            --prefix=$HOME                      \
            --with-builtin-filters='perl,c'     \
            --with-scr=$i                       \
        && make -wk all install;

    exit 0;

xvile running locally will happily cut
and paste, it's only the stuff coming
from a remote host that bites me.

I'm rebuilding a copy of xvile on my home
gentoo system now to see if this is some
obscene collection of X11 settings; any
suggestions of things to check appreciated.
