Thanks.  I know all that.  My question was about this pair of calls on

And hasn't that now been answered?

Almost: I'd like Jan to tell whether my guess regarding the reason(s)
for his change was correct.

The reason was indeed to call x-selection-value-internal. All this selection stuff is a bit messy now. Ideally x-get-selection should use x-select-request-type and we could reduce the number of function that gets selection on X. However, one would have to check all platforms and all uses of the current routines to do a good refactoring.
