My problem is that I can't copy/paste at all between VNCviewer and 
anything outside of VNCviewer on either Ubuntu or Windows.  I'm using Xvnc 
Free Edition 4.1.1 on Ubuntu, and I'm connecting either from VNC Viewer 
Free Edition 4.1.1 for X on Ubuntu, or from VNC Viewer Free Edition 4.1.3 
on Windows XP.  On Ubuntu, it's a direct local connection.  On XP I'm 
using an SSH tunnel.  Xvnc is using the -localhost option.
