This bug appeared to me as I used openoffice draw under xubuntu 7.04
(xfce4-clipman-plugin 0.8.0)
When I want to clone an object within ooo draw, I utilize the copy/paste
function. But it doesn't work as expected! The pasted object has nothing to do
with the original. Other users reported a similar problem with other apps from
the openoffice suite.
I suspect a conflict/interference with the clipboard manager featured with
xubuntu, namely "xfce4-clipaman-plugin" :
If I disable this plugin, the copy/paste function works again. I do so for now
but it's not a very convenient way to solve the problem, a clipboard manager is
very useful for me.
Using glipper instead of clipman bring to the same problem. It's not a
I think these clipboard managers can't handle the special metadata of the
objects used in ooo.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start openoffice draw
2. Draw a random shape
3. Try to copy/paste it

Actual Results:  
It pastes the previous clipboard (text) entry.

Expected Results:  
It pastes the shape.

This bug was reported against xubuntu feisty with xfce4-clipman-plugin 0.8.0,
but I'm able to reproduce it on debian lenny with xfce4-clipman-plugin 0.8.1.
