Thanks, indeed that snuck in there when I added support for the clipboard later than the X selection.
In addition I noticed that the help text did not explain that the default has always been to paste into both the primary X selection and the clipboard, whichever is requested first. That means that explicitly selecting one of these is rarely needed.
I've fixed this in the code on https://github.com/nsd20463/pwsafe
