DDLHG> Do you see this when using middle mouse button or C-y or both?

All I know is starting with 
   $ apt-cache policy emacs-snapshot 
     Installed: 1:20100724-1
     Candidate: 1:20100724-1
     Version table:
    *** 1:20100724-1 0
           500 http://emacs.orebokech.com sid/main Packages
           100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I am having two kinds of pain:

1. Having to write things into /tmp/files to be able to read them into
emacs correctly as xclip now can't if I want Chinese intact.
I try every button and end up having to resort to /tmp.

2. Even more disconnection between C-y, Shift-insert, the middle mouse
button, between emacs and the outside world. I wish I could make them
all connected.
