You mean that text would actually be copied to the clipboard?  YMMV,
but it would never occur to me to interpret it that way.  Rather, I
would interpret it that when text is selected, the til-then snoozing
clipboard gets a light tap on its shoulder "hey, man, wake up, we may
have some work for you to do!" (and then again, we may not).
