As far as I could understand, the issue is related to the fact that the text in
the clipboard -set using Clipboard.SetDataObject (data, true)- should remaing
there and available after the windows.forms application is closed. 

Is this is the case, there's no chance to do such thing, since that's a
limitation of X11 in the unix systems, where the application putting data to
the 'clipboard' should remain alive - if they are closed, the data is NOT kept.
There have been various approachs to fix this issue in Gnome/KDE projects, but
we can't depend on them, since that would mean add a dependency on them.

If this was the issue, we can't fix it -specially because it's been a problem
for years in the unix systems, and the way to fix it it's way too complex to
only keep data in the clipboard after the app gets closed-.

Please comment about this ;-)

Thanks for your time!
