Interesting. How do you do it?  For all other apps, all you have to do
is select the text and then center-click in the window where you want
the selected text inserted.

I've tried everything I can think of with evince, and it's not putting
the selected text in any of the three X11 clipboards or buffers, so
I'm stumped.
