vim documentation says that 

gv                      [ ............ ]
                        In Visual mode the current and the previous
                        Visual area are exchanged.

If you select text in visual mode, hit <Esc>, and then select another
text in visual mode, hitting again gv does not exchange to the previos
Visual area, as it should.

This "bug" happens only if you have klipper (KDE) open,
because of the interaction of this program when you are selecting text inside
of vim. Thus, you can close this bug, as it is not a vim problem.
