I don't use Clipman but another, similar application.  My understanding 
is that it contains clipboard history but is not the clipboard.

There's an article here about the X clipboard:

BTW: I copied that link using the copy icon in Firefox (Swiftfox).  When 
I went to Thunderbird, the Paste icon was disabled but I was able to 
paste using Ctrl+V.  The same thing happens often with OpenOffice when 
pasting data copied from another application.
