I am using Ubuntu 10.04 using the standard desktop install so there is nothing
unique about my system that would cause this to be computer related issue.  It
is either Konveration of Ubuntu which is not passing the link/data properly. 
Normally, I cut & paste to Open Office just fine as well.  This is a recent
version of Ubuntu as it was a net install and there were no failures according
to the system logs or boot logs.  I was also surprised that when I pulled the
install for Konversation it pulled the mySql installer (core) and other
components.  I am using Synaptic to pull from the Ubuntu repositories and they
have not been altered from the install.  So, that leads me to the issue it
*has* to be on konversation not the system.  I am running Firefox beta 10 too
(which was in the build - so that could be the problem too.)  I've had strange
encounters with Firefox Beta on Windows too.    BTW, Firefox was not closed
when trying to cut/paste from Firefox - Konversation would not even see the
data that was cut from Firefox yet Open Office did - so i know the data was
