KPasteTextAction not working

I was a little shocked today to see that the new KPasteTextAction is not
working. It uses DCOP signals to get the clipboard history from Klipper and
set the clipboard & paste the selected item from the history. This worked
when I've implemented it, but does not work here. The problem is with the:
call. It sets the specified item in klipper, but does not put the text into
the clipboard, thus nothing is pasted.
I've tried to find out where is the problem, but couldn't. If I print out the
clipboard content in the Klipper DCOP method, it shows that it was set, but
in the KPasteTextAction or the application which handles this action the same
query for the clipboard return an empty string. It happens also if I delay
the activated() signal with several seconds, so it doesn't seem to be a
On a second (now simple) press on the action button inserts the previously
selected item in the document correctly, and the same debug output shows that
now there is data in the clipboard.
I can suspect two things:
- - qtcopy (can someone try to use this paste from history functionality e.g in
KEdit with Qt 3.2.x ?)
- - klipper: there were some changes in Klipper in the last months. One is
Waldo's newInstance() fix, the other is made by Lubos regarding the polling
of the clipboard. If it's not a qtcopy problem, I would guess it's the latter
one causing the problem. Can this be?
Please, if someone has more knowledge about it, look at what can be wrong.
