I have some issue to find a reproduce way, but it is occurs oftenly. When it is broken, I can copy paste in CentOs, but not from it to Windows. But then in Windows I can copy paste too, but only from it, as if there were two clipboard. Sometime, it symptom is different: there is a freeze of 3s when in CentOs it tries to copy or to paste from Windows. Sometime, the paste in Windows simply paste nothing, or just a space, but it still work in CentOs.

I have done some work on the clipboard code (again), so hopefully the
next nx version ( will improve the situation. I am not
really sure why the situation has become worse in recent times (as I
conclude from various reports). Please ensure you do _not_ have a
clipboard manager running in CentOS. This it not supported an will
cause unexpected problems.
