Well, then please, try the fish, I mean the rev 2 patch, with a

(customization group killing):
x-cut-buffer-or-selection-value-return-multiple t
x-cut-buffer-or-selection-value-return-order :pcb
x-select-enable-clipboard including :paste in its choose list (or t)
x-select-enable-primary also including :paste in its choose list (or t)

- then, when you C-y, the primary X11 selection (i.e. currently
highlighted) thing is inserted (and put on the kill ring), and the
clipboard, if any was found, and if different, is an M-y away.

This is a variant the "Tom Horsley thang", which the patch IMO
supports nicely even though I don't like it much myself.
