I tried to force klipper not to autostart, but no luck.

Here is an effective patch that works for me -- I don't know why, but
Klipper seems to use the same requestor value even after I restart KDE.

It is most likely completely non-portable, but could be made portable if
we could identify klipper by its steady stream of requests.

But I guess we shouldn't really spend a lot of time trying to work around
this Klipper bug.
