In the past I've noted there can be some strangeness with copy-paste 
with the Fedoras -- you will copy something, but paste pastes something 
older. It can be worked around by clicking on the selection in Klipper, 
but that seems inconvenient.

I've found that the native editors for Gnome and KDE work better, so 
using Kate or gedit usually accomplishes these copy-paste operations 
without flaws.
