Description of problem:
Data in the clipboard coming from LO are lost once LO is closed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document with LO Writer
2. Open gEdit
3. Copy some text in LO writer
4. Close LO
5. Switch to gEdit and try to paste

Actual results:
The text can't be paste because the clipboard has been cleared.

Expected results:
The text stays in the clipboard for future use.

Additional info:
It may be fair to have a confirmation dialog to keep the data in clipboard or not when closing LO.

Our current gtk2 impl doesn't use gtk for c-n-p, but uses the old direct X11 calls. The new gtk3 one does use the gtk apis, so at least in theory if we can find the right place to call gtk_clipboard_store somewhere during shutdown we should be able to finally support this.

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2016-01-21 12:03:52 UTC
can't do anything about f22. But for f23 onwards with libreoffice-gtk3 installed we can finally support this
