If you're using KDE, there appears to be a fairly simple workaround in
the mean time. Right click on the "Klipper" icon in the taskbar/tray,
and in the general prefs under "Clipboard/Selection Behaviour" change it
from "Separate clipboard and selection" to "Synchronize contents of the
clipboard and selection".

This will change the behaviour of copy/paste globally however, so you
may not want to do it depending on how you use copy/paste. GNOME, at
least the version I tested with, seems to work this way by default
though so it's probably not going to be a big deal for most people.
