Partly fixed in r33695.

Copy-paste of rich text from OpenOffice.org to Ink now works, but only if the selection is copied before starting Ink/gpbs.

It seems that [[NSPasteboard generalPasteboard] types] is not updated after the app starts.  I think we need to listen for changes of the X selection, and there is an API in Xfixes to do that. It should be an easy fix to xpbs.

Copy-paste of rich text from abiword is not working, need to investigate.

Copying rich text from Ink and pasting in OpenOffice or Abiword works (formatting like bold, italic, underline is preserved.)

However, the reverse direction (copying rich text from OpenOffice or Abiword and pasting in Ink) does not work - formatting is lost and only plain text is pasted.

I did some minimal debugging and GNUstep-gui was requesting rich text from gpbs. I believe the bug is in gpbs or the X part of gpbs.

GNUstep is at r32649, OS is Ubuntu 10.10
