Agreed, Klipper is broken by design, it heavily abuses the clipboard.

I always end up disabling Klipper sooner or later (normally soon after 
experiencing lock ups after performing clipboard related operations).

Personally I'd like to see all of Lubos' suggestions made including 
"completely nuking the 'synchronizing' feature"
