Only with poorly behaveing Star Office... although I found a nice fix for that
in the KOffice cvs module ;)

I have been using klipper as an applet since pre kde 3.1. My only gripe with
an applet is that on one of my systems i dont run kicker (dont even press
this issue, its a usability experiement). I am often wondering if the
clipboard would better be served as a kded module and klipper only be a thin
front end to it. From what i can tell the two nice features of klipper are
the history (now accessable via dcop) and the actions... (the jury is still
out on this one...). I think klipper also syncs X and Qt clipboards... but I
am not sure on that... Am I confused on the operation of klipper? Could we
make it even leaner and not dependant on the panel?
Just an idea... I am sorry if i drove this too far off topic...
