Lets make a list about toolkit default behavior (to start with):
Selection cleared by default when new PRIMARY is set:
- Xt ( XAW and MOTIF )
Selection _NOT_ cleared by default when new PRIMARY is set:
- MS Windows default toolkit
- XUL ( Firefox with GTK+ doesn't so it is a XUL feature, right? )
What about others? Mac OS X? QNX? Open Office? Java?
