When opening the select-what-to-paste-dialog with the shortcut (eg ctrl+alt+v) the selected item should directly become inserted, without pressing ctrl+v again.

Another vote for this functionality. :)
another vote for this functionality
On Mac OS X I use the Multiple Pasteboard (Clipboard) function of Butler.
I am looking for an equivalent in Linux (my distro of choice is Ubuntu).
For GNOME I found Glipper, for KDE Klipper, and there also was Parcellite.
They all were similar, possibly even forks with a common origin.
But none of them came close to the usability of the Butler Pasteboard!
COMPARISON TO BUTLER
In the copy step they show similar functionality as Butler.
One can decide, how many items to be remembered, what to be the maximum clipboard size, and whether the software support plain-text, or rich-text or possibly even (multi) media content.
But the main deficiencies arise, when calling up the paste board:
a) There is no quick way to select an item (no direct access key as in Butler)
b) The selected item is copied to the main OS pasteboard, and from there again you need to paste it to your destination, rather then directly pasting the selected item to your destination as Butler does.
Changing this functionality would drastically improve the efficiency!
NECESSARY USER STEPS COMPARED:
Glipper = hotkey 1 + complicated selection 1.5 + pasting from main clipboard 1 = 3.5 steps
Butler = hotkey 1 + selection 1 = 2 steps
