Before you go programming something as  a replacement, I would check the 
features of the Desktop environment, if you are using one i.e.. I have 
been working with Mathematica on Linux since V4.2, and am currently at 
I sometimes use a Desktop environment on Linux but I know that what you 
describe below has never been an issue. In any case, I would suggest 
trying to switch from say KDE to GNOME. See if there is a difference. 
If so install a different version of the Desktop environment and test it 
etc etc.

Otherwise see if Developer`ClipboardNotebook, NotebookWrite, NotebookRead 
etc can be of help to you.
