Freshly installed Linux Mint 9 (Ubuntu derivative) 3 days old, freshly
installed RunRev 4.0.0 Studio (10 minutes ago)

I didn't have the clipboard manager installed on this system at all
and everything worked fine with copy/paste. Did the installation of
the Gnome based clipboard manager called "Glipper" added it to the
panel and the problems immediately began just as indicated.

Amazing that you found that!
