Hi Yves-Alexis,

I am currently using xfce4-clipman-plugin version 2:1.0.0-1 and the
behavior and looks of this plugin is complete different from version
2:0.9.0-1. In my opinion they are two different software products.

When using 1.0.0 and having the "add selections" option checked. It is
added immediately to the list this is kind of nice, however it is
impossible to to select text and copy it over an other selection because
the new selection will be directly copied to the buffer.

I don't know if this is normal behavior and if KDE and GNOME clipboard
managers do the same. But this "features" makes the "add selection"
system not productive for me anymore. So I stopped using it because I
could not use it to copy and replace text anymore...

The behavior of the 0.9.0 version on this bug report is not reproducible
anymore since 1.0.0 is complete different.

I would also like the clipman to stay KISS (keep It Simple Stupid) I
don't see added value for the complicated Action feature and the Image
storage system or the enable/disable feature. Maybe somebody can explain
it to me ;-) Some of my customers complained about the changes and I
don't have any answers for them ...

Thanks in advance,

Jelle de Jong
