You're totally right, sorry! I guess it's time for me to sleep ;-)
But if you're first hack worked already, that's maybe good to test
further if it really fixes it.

Another idea, how about skipping GTK completely and piping the current
selection into `clip.exe`? This might have new issues but maybe it's
worth a try and not even slower than having a short "lock" after each
Ctrl-C ...
