Emacs is a plain X/Xtoolkit application so it will just place things in
one of the X cut buffers.  That's why using the middle mouse button will
do the paste.

You will probably find that the paste from gnome-terminal to emacs is
working via the X cut buffer rather than the clipboard.

Yes, xemacs for GTK will use the same widget set and other
infrastructure (i.e. the GNOME clipboard) so it will probably give the
result you are looking for.
