I just installed xclipboard and indeed I get that error trying to run it.

Google [1] says that this command:
$ gconftool-2 --get /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/plugins/clipboard/active
tells if the internal clipboard manager is active. It is, for me.

(and if I set it to false then xclipboard can be launched.)

My current plan is to wait for the bug to happen again. Does that sound
right or is there any preparation to do ?
