OK, so you are running a single X server controlling two screens
(multiple X servers would be called :0.0, :1.0, etc.).  These
distinctions are subtle but important.

Aaah, did not know that... I guess that multiple X servers come into play with two graphics cards then?

What I suggest you do is to install some form of clipboard manager -
clipit, parcellite, etc. - and then you can see what's actually being
cut and where the problem is.

Ok, tried both and they both worked a couple times at first and then the paste stopped working again... I can 
see the text I copied in those
applications but they are just not there when I try to paste on the other screen... (btw, it is the same when 
I try to paste something into Evolution
from the other screen).

btw, I am using Nvidia drivers version 352.21-2 (it that's of any interest...)
