Subject: Re: retry: Problem transfering X11 cut/copy buffer to windows and back

I sometimes get in this situation where one and only one xterm
receives a paste no matter which window (X or Windows) I'm trying to
paste into.

THIS IS NOT A BUG REPORT, my cygwin is pretty old.

However I've found oddly enough if I go into the xterm receiving all
the pastes and press CTRL-mousebutton, doesn't matter which button
only that one of the xterm menus appears, "Main Options", "VT Fonts",
whatever, might take a few tries, it seems to reset things and the
pasting problem disappears w/o having to actually restart/reboot/etc

The menu only has to appear and then let it close, release the
keypresses, nothing in the menu is clicked.
