When selecting text with a mouse, glipper appears to save a history snapshot for every letter the mouse crosses, which typically wipes out any previous history one might have had. See attached screenshot which occurred as a result of selecting the single string "every day I start my" (followed by an automatic entry from gnome-screenshot). This occurs in Ubuntu Lucid on one of my machines, but not on another. Not sure which setting could be doing this, but it seems like gnome is sending events under different conditions.

    I've the same problem. I use:

    - GNOME 2.30.2
    - Glipper 1.0.
    - Compiz-Fusion (if it might affect Glipper's behavior).

    Please, see the following screenshot: http://simplest-image-hosting.net/jpg-0-glipper

    Is Glipper being developed at all?
