Subject: Clipboard periodically breaks

I often keep gedit sessions open on remote servers for maintaining 
various scripts. The problem I've encountered is that after a while I 
can no longer copy/paste between X and Windows.

For example, I'll copy in windows and attempt to paste in gedit but 
nothing will happen. However, if I then proceed to copy something in 
gedit it will immediate "paste" that in place of where I had previously 
tried to paste from Windows.

Sometimes I can get it working again by bombarding the clipboard with 
copy/pastes from both X and Windows. But most of the time I have to exit 
the ssh session and reconnect.

Is this a known problem?

I am using the Cygwin x32 with the latest packages.
