AIUI, the clipboard is just another selection -- you have the
PRIMARY, SECONDARY, and CLIPBOARD buffers?  But I may be wrong, and
it may be that CLIPBOARD should be filled when it is first grabbed,
so it will stay populated past when the grabbing application exits.

Nope.  jwz's page seems to back this up:

The clipboard's just another, unfortunately-named, selection.
