Well, unfortunately, without more information (or 'luck') it is unlikely 
the situation will improve in dp-9.

Given your existing bug report 
( I do wonder if this is 
something clipboard related.

There are two things which could help us diagnose the problem:

1) A new strace log taken whilst launching and running the engine (as 
described in the aforementioned report).

2) The IDE 'Tools' log (this should be in ~/.runrev/logs IIRC).

Other information which might help is the list of packages you have 
installed in your Linux system - in particular, do you have a clipboard 
manager, or any other similar 'helper' things installed?

Warmest Regards,
