So, copy and pasting on Linux can be influenced by several factors.
First of all, if you are running KDE, chances are that KDE's clipboard
manager thingie (I forget the name) can interfere with LibreOffice's
copy and paste.  If you are in this situation, try disabling it to see
if that makes any difference.

Failing that, most of the clipboard handling code for unix platform is
located under vcl/generic/dtrans.
