It is true, I can reproduce this on Thunar on Xubuntu Hardy/8.04.1LTS
with Thunar 0.9.0 with Glipper (Gnome clipboard manager) active in Xfce
panel with XfApplet.

I personally mostly use pcmanfm and Copy/paste of an image with closing
an application does not work eather. (But it is much easier to use
pcmanfm because one can use multiple tabs in it to browse multiple folders)

So that is how X behaves and currently I don`t know for a workaround but
for a textual copy/paste history in Clipman og Glipper.

Maybe you could reccomend/post a bug on wishlist for both of them
to include not only textual history but also binary data support
for copy/paste history.
