I always close emacs with C-x C-c, i use no menu, scrollbar, buttons etc

Note that of course setting `x-select-enable-clipboard-manager' to nil
have fixed the problem:

(when (boundp 'x-select-enable-clipboard-manager)
  (setq x-select-enable-clipboard-manager nil))

(I really don't need such feature, i have always an emacs session
running, and even if i close emacs, i don't feel the need of keeping
stuff in the clipboard.)
