   I do agree with you. Since this problem has never existed before the
hardware change I assume that somehow they're related.

   I've not tried ctrl-c, ctrl-v between two applications. I will. I'll also
be swapping the hard drive for the new one.

   It's the same applications running now that I've run in the past. Newer
versions, perhaps, but when the paste fails within the same rxvt I suspect
it's not the "application" as I'm only copying displayed text and trying to
paste it on the command line. That's about as simple as it gets.
