Thanks for the reply.  Yes it happens from an earlier client version on another Windows machine.  We haven't testing the Linux or Mac clients as we don't use them in our area for Thinlinc connections.  We would do direct SSH from those most times.

Do you have any suggestions?

Whenever anyone tried to copy/paste in various programs, when they highlight an area of text, it unhighlights after a second and they cannot copy it.  This is true for all programs and for whether you use the mouse to select the text or the keyboard.  We are connecting to a 4.10.1 thinlinc server version on Fedora 30 and using the 4.10.1 version of the client from Windows.  We have tried this using both XFCE and LXDE desktops on the Linux system.  This is essentially making using thinlinc useless for us.  Any help would be most appreciated.

That sounds like there is a clipboard manager on either side running that is taking over the clipboard. Many applications respond to this by clearing the selection.

Have you tested if it happens from all clients?

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
