Do you see any change in behavior if you change the value of
selection-coding-system?  For example, what happens if you type
"C-x RET x latin-1 RET" and then mark a region of pure ASCII
characters and type "M-w"--can you paste that text into other
applications?  Please also try with "C-x RET x compound-text RET".
