hmm - xvile dies?  (I guess so - we should catch the X errors).

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'     \

   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.

I read some recent news/mailing comment that said this would happen if one
doesn't have xauth running - at the moment I don't recall how xauth and ssh's X forwarding work together. But that's the general area to investigate.
