I've done this loads of times under gnome and it works. Perhaps it's a
XFCE issue?

Do you have a 3rd mouse button? try selecting the text and using the 3rd
mouse button to paste

the body of an email <copy>, close email, and jump to another desktop
with a browser and <paste> into the address bar - nothing.  The copied
text is gone from the clipboard.  Same even if I am copying text between
an old mail and a new one I'm composing while staying within Evo on one
desktop.  It only works as described if I leave the mail open in a
background window.  Is this a "feature" or a window manager issue, given
that all other apps behave as I want?

Using Evo 2.0.4 (nothing better avail on FC3 repos) on Xfce 4.2.0 on

Evo 1.4 to evo 2.2.3 now.
