--- Comment #6 from Ricardo Mones <mones at users.sourceforge.net> ---
Doing a quick research on this shows it seems to be an old GTK+ bug. Ubuntu's
bug¹ reports more broken applications, but that's from years ago.

Upstream main bug² has also a lot of discussion about this and has been split
into other bugs³.

As some of the reporters say, using some clipboard tool workarounds the
problem, which leads to the explanation about why I was not able to reproduce

I'm using KDE which launches klipper automatically. If I quit klipper I can
reproduce the bug.

Anyway, it's not a Claws Mail one, hence closing ;-)
