Yes, it does.

Good, thanks.

A working (and installed in /Applications) copy from
middle of June describes double-click as the same – and copies the word
to Mac OS X pasteboard and X11 PRIMARY selection (or XQuartz 2.5.1
(xorg-server from MacPorts is synching OS X and X11).

Yes, Xquartz is handling syncing - IIUC native NS emacs presently knows nothing* of real X11 selections, and only interacts with the NS pasteboard.

The Xquartz on OS X manpage documents a set of options you can use to tune _how_ Xquartz syncs the native OS X pasteboard and the X11 clipboard and/or primary:


[I haven't yet discovered equivalent tunable settings for Cygwin/X, hope they haven't hardcoded something broken.]

* well, gnustep's gui layer, unlike macosx, sits on top of x11, and some abstractions may be slightly leaky.
