When I select text in Mozilla Firebird .6, a
middle-click does not paste it into rxvt. It does
correctly paste into xterm.

Copying text from rxvt and pasting it into Mozilla
Firebird works fine.

I'm using the Fedora Linux build of Firebird
(MozillaFirebird-0.6-0.fdr.4.rh90) and rxvt-2.7.6-4.

Note: I just built rxvt-2.7.10 from sourceforge, and
the problem is still present in that release.

    You can try --enable-xim, as then rxvt will support compund
    text.

    However, mozilla-firebird should be able to supply a normal
    STRING selection, so this is a shortcoming in firebird.

    rxvt does not accept a paste from most other program but
    rxvt itself for me. i tried a gtk+ application, firebird,
    vim, openoffice... xterm and xvt work just fine.
    --enable-xim is set for my version. may this be a problem of
    gtk+/gnome?
