Well, (in a way) I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I have it
with GNU Emacs 24.3.1 on Fedora 19 and Gnome and enquired about it on this
group on 2013-11-21 ("Intermittent problems with cut/copy and paste (using CUA
keys) between Emacs and other programs") where I asked how to go about tracking
down the bug, but got no response to that.

barely mitigates the problem.
As I use Emacs to compose emails / news posts that and then have to be pasted
into web-based news/mail interfaces, this bug is a frequent annoyance.
I'd very much like to hear anyone's suggestions for tracking down the cause of
