Using rxvt 2.7.7 under Tru64 UNIX 5.0A (no patches)
with the standard mwm window manager here.

When I copy things from rxvt windows and try to paste
them into Mozilla (Build ID: 2001101719, aka 0.9.5)
they won't paste, at least not with 1 click of button-2.

If I click multiple times in rapid sucession, I can
sometimes get things to paste into Mozilla's location
field, but I'd love to be able to just click once with
button-2 in Mozilla's main browser window and have it
work like I think it should.

This does work with Netscape 4.7x, and if I use a
regular xterm instead of rxvt on this system it also
works properly.

Cutting and pasting seems to work just fine between
rxvt windows, and xterm windows in either direction.

Please let me know what I can do to help with this issue.

Thanks!

    This may have been fixed when changes in similar areas were
    made recently. If you're willing and able, please try a
    current CVS version or a snapshot from here:
    http://rxvt.sourceforge.net/rxvt-20011023.tar.gz

    Thanks!

    I'm now using the CVS snapshot:
    http://rxvt.sourceforge.net/rxvt-20011023.tar.gz

    and things are better, but not perfect.

    My first cut and paste into the browser window worked
    normally. Hooray! However, subsequent pastes didn't work
    right away, although it isn't
    as bad with the 2.7.7. I don't have to click as many times
    to paste now, and I can even now click several times in the
    browser window and have mozilla accept the URL and load it.
    That didn't work with 2.7.7.

    I'll try a few more things and post results if they add
    anything.

    The newer rxvt combined with the latest Mozilla (0.9.7) has
    fixed all issues. I can paste with one click each and every
    time now.
