            Bug ID: 402863
           Summary: copy and paste stops working after a while
           Product: konsole
           Version: 18.08.2
          Platform: openSUSE RPMs
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: copy-paste
          Assignee: konsole-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: kuenne at rentec.com
  Target Milestone: ---

SUMMARY

If I run konsole for a while, usually several weeks, it suddenly stops copying
text to the clipboard or primary selection. I select some text with the left
mouse button and paste it with the middle mouse button but instead of the
selected text I get something older which was selected previously. I can select
whatever I want with the left button but I always get the same old selection
with the middle button paste. It also doesn't matter if I use the Copy menu
entry, same result. It looks as if the copy to primary selection function stops
working. If I change the primary selection via some other means and paste into
konsole I get the changed content. If I start a new window from the konsole
File menu it inherits the broken copy. If I start a fresh konsole it works
normal.


STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. run konsole for some time, probably weeks
2. select some text
3. paste text into konsole

OBSERVED RESULT
some old selection is pasted

EXPECTED RESULT
the newly selected text should be pasted
