Which version of emacs?  I think cut buffers was removed in version 24 so any 
version before 24 would be using cut buffers and new VNC's use selection.

I was encouraged by a friend to switch from the older vnc's to a purchased copy 
of RealVNC for AIX.  $50 a year I believe.  I'm still using the trail key.

At this point, using the new (not open source) RealVNC server, I can copy and 
paste (both directions) from a Mac app to Emacs 24.  I can not presently copy 
from the old xterm to emacs 24 but I am pretty sure that is a setting that 
needs to change.  I have not tried emacs 22 displayed in the new RealVNC 
window.  I can try that tomorrow and report back.

But, should this be required?  Should users be required to go use non open 
source code just to get their emacs to behave right?

I still would like to see cut buffers added back in to the standard 
distribution.  I'm also wondering if the various boolean flags could not be 
better auto configured by detecting the level of X11 server emacs is running on.

Thank you,
