hmm... it sounds like that won't actually restore the previous behavior:
previously emacs transparently worked with _both_ the selection and

or the clipboard (or from the emacs kill-ring), whichever was more

that's the behavior I want.

Um, you're thinking of certain of your own customisations that you yourself mentioned a few days back on emacs-devel. The old defaults
didn't do that either.

So you need to (notionally) revert to the old defaults as given, then reapply your customisations, which shouldn't be hard in this case: I believe the difference is kust that you operated with both x-select-enable-primary and x-select-enable-clipboard turned on at once, which causes x-cut-buffer-or-selection-value to try to be "clever".

(Note I wanted the settings all boolean customisations was because it would become possible to use an "old x11 defaults" customization theme with them - bindings aren't included in customization themes).
