On Cygwin, I can confirm all is desribed here [*]. Another recipe, for Cygwin, is:

emacs -Q &

double click (mouse-1) on a word, for example 'buffer'. With the down arrow go to the bottom of the buffer and then C-y: it takes about 4-5 second, and the mouse cursor switches to its "please wait" (clock).

On *Kubuntu 10.04* the things are a little different but wrong in any case. Following the step described here[*], at point 4) it pastes casual text, usually what is found in the clipboard. For example, adding the step 0):

0) with your browser, copy a link address with mouse-3 | 'Copy link address' menu item.

At step 4), it pastes the link, not the scartch buffer comment!

As described here [*], all seems to work as expected, if one adds

(setq x-select-clipboard-enable nil)

to .emacs file.

After these changes something is not working rightly with Copy/Paste.
Nor on GNU/Linux Kubuntu nor on Cygwin (both GTK build of trunk).

On Kubuntu often it paste the wrong test (both using C-y and mouse-2).
Only after playing with it some time, it seems to work.

On Cygwin, *usually*, using C-y is slower. If I select some test with
the mouse then, when I type C-y to paste it, I get 'Mark set' in the
minibuffer, and the text is pasted only after 5-10 second (the 'clock'
shows up). Using mouse-2, instead, seems to work fine.

Not always, one can reproduce the above exactly :(.

In both systems I have started Emacs with 'emacs -Q'.
