well, the X selection thingie is the only thing that I can think of which
somehow might be related to the coding system. I just created a record in
my own change log and then copy-pasted it to the emacs changelog.
All within the same session.

I normally don't fool around with the coding system. But because there is
some kind of a bug with the default coding system for X selections, I
changed that one.  Can't think of anything else.
