IIRC I meant that from another emacs session, 'nil' was returned by M-:
(x-get-selection 'SECONDARY).

> 1) Who owns the selection, i.e. the application copied from?

It did not matter whether I was copying from firefox, thunderbird,
okular or even another emacs session (these are the softwares I use most
of the time). I must admit I probably did not make a conscious test
"what if I try copying from there and then pasting in emacs", but I did
test a lot of things (although obviously not the right set of things),
and would have noticed such an obvious pattern. I hope.

Also I found it weird that the timeout problem happens with PRIMARY,
SECONDARY and CLIPBOARD, no matter which one I choose.

> 2) What desktop environment is used?

I use Gnome 2. I have some kde softwares (okular) but I don't run KDE.

Possibly. I looked at:
which lists a few of the "klipper equivalents for gnome", and I can find
none of these on my system (I'm using Gentoo). Is it worth checking more
? Is there something I can do to check reliably ?
