Ah! I've narrowed down the problem with evince select/copy. It works
fine as long as you do the paste on the same X11 display. If you
try to do the paste on a different display, you get nothing. None of
the other apps I've tried have this problem. I've checked various X
terminals, xemacs, firefox, chrome, libreoffce, acroread, meld,
[Yes, I can cut and paste from _Windows_ apps across displays but not
I filed a bug against evince, but I don't know how common multiple
display setups are (as opposed to single display, multiple monitor
setups like you get with Xinerama). So it may never get fixed (unless
I get ambitious).
 When I refer to a "display" in this context, I mean an X11 display
(as in $DISPLAY) not a physical LCD/CRT monitor.
