Rule of thumb: If you have nothing worth mentioning to say, shut up. 

The possibly useful behaviour was syncing clipboard with selection, not the 
other way around. The fact that klipper produces all these races and slows things 
noticeably down (because on every selection change it actually requests the 
selection and puts it into the clipboard for nothing but wasting CPU power 
and hogging the X server) is unacceptable, and it is more than worth putting 
some energy in finally fixing this crap once and for all.
