G'day, 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 5.2. 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.
