Description From cendio 2018-08-27 14:42:02
We've had issues with Klipper immediately stealing the clipboard whenever it
gets updated from the server. This can result in incorrect contents, and even
non functional clipboard in either the client or server.

Report upstream:

https://github.com/TigerVNC/tigervnc/issues/520

And fix upstream:

https://github.com/TigerVNC/tigervnc/commit/dfc2001b3f681cbd1377a3096781182727f13d24

Apparently this was a general Qt bug that would affect any application using
that toolkit. A workaround was possible in Xvnc though.

Verified that I could reproduce the problem with interfering klipper using
ThinLinc v4.9.0. Upgraded to nightly build and there is no apparent
interference with klipper and clipboard.
