Using Mint 17 Mate 64-bit. This is a wacky one I've been encountering frequently, lately. When I copy something from a Libreoffice Calc spreadsheet I can paste it into another application all I want until I close Calc, at which point the clipboard clears. It will not clear the clipboard if I had copied data from elsewhere.
What is going on here ??
It doesn't want me to retain the clipboard contents after exiting? Why would I want it to clear my clipboard?
It knows whether or not the clipboard originated from itself? Strange.
Why should clipboard contents copied from Calc be treated differently than other applications? Unable to reproduce the problem in Writer, or any other application.
There are no clipboard settings anywhere that I can tell.
