I have a various problems when trying to copy/paste between two

- and even sometimes gnumeric crashes

I have already complained about this and I know I should fill bug
reports but the problem is that these behaviour are not reproductible.
Usually, restarting gnumeric and/or gedit will solve the problem.
I can only say it seems to happen with relatively large datasets.

First of all you have to confirm that you are not running any clipboard
manager such as clipper, klipper, ...

To debug gnumeric's clipboard handling it is usually helpful to run it
with the GNM_DEBUG environment variable set to "clipboard". This will
create lots of information on the terminal.
