           Summary: Multiple active clipboard selections
           Product: Xfce Panel Plugins
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC (x86)
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: clipman
        AssignedTo: goodies-dev at xfce.org
        ReportedBy: genthree at gmail.com

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:

Build Identifier: 

Selecting text in an Xterm results in multiple active clipboard entries, even
if "Normal clipboard management" is selected.

The latest X selection always prevails over xterm selections.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select some text in X -> check the clipman history -> The selected text is
2. Select some text in Xterm -> check the clipman history -> Both the selected
xterm text and the previously selected X text are bold
3. Paste the latest clipboard entry: ctrl-v -> the X text gets pasted instead
of the xterm text...

Expected Results:  
The latest selection/copy action should always overwrite the previous, either
Xterm or X based... And only 1 item should be active (=bold) in the clipboard

I'm using r2480 of the clipman plugin.
