I had this problem with Emacs on Linux. After your email I checked it 
with xterm and found that it worked. I could paste into the Xvnc xterm
and when I marked it in the xterm it copied successfully into Emacs.

I checked the possible various Emacs functions to paste from the X
clipboard and found that `x-get-cut-buffer' does paste directly from
the client VNC.
