If CTRL and CMD have been swapped via xmodmap you need to uncheck
 [ ] Enable key equivalents under X11
in the X11 'Input' preferences tab, otherwise the cmd+c, cmd+v will
never be received by any X11 application because the 'cmd' modifier key
is first 'read' by osx for the menu bar keyboard shortcuts.

I meant of course to attach the file to your next reply to the list ;-)
