comment How can I merge the gnome clipboard and the X selection?
I tried Glipper, which had a decent workaround for the selection problem: when you've destroyed your previous selection by selecting something else, Glipper lets you access the history and get back what you had. However, it interferes with Synergy clipboard sharing, which is a non-starter. :(

comment How can I merge the gnome clipboard and the X selection?
parcellite appears to successfully merge the clipboards. It does not solve the latter problem, which is pasting over a selection. I like that I can paste a single buffer with either control-v or middle button. I do not like (and would like to disable) selection as copy.

I think the ability to cut at arbitrary frame boundaries might be encoding-specific.

This looked really promising, but running it doesn't appear to change anything. :(

comment “Detach” and “Reattach” xterms across X sessions?
With screen you can actually have different xterms with different terminals. Just use screen -x and switch each xterm to it's own screen. One xterm can have screen 1, another screen 2, etc. This could all be scripted, too... "xterm -e screen -x -p 1 &" etc.

I've hit this, too. Are you using vpnc-connect/vpnc-disconnect by any chance?

tail -f does work, but I'd prefer to work within less.

No, the logs are not rotating. It's the same file.
