Clipman 'select text in xterm' issue

Dear list,

To my understanding, the Xfce Clipboard manager has the option to merge 
the 'X' clipboard with the 'selection' clipboard.

When selecting text in X, the selected (or copied with ctrl-c) text is 
immediately paste-able in an xterm using shift-insert.
The other way around: Selecting text in an xterm isn't paste-able in X, 
unless explicitly selected from the 'Clipman History'. The 'Clipman 
History' also shows 2 active clipboard items... (see attachment)

Is this the expected behavior or a bug?
