Do you have a valid locale set in your environment?  Try "export  
LC_ALL=C" before starting your images, or maybe "export

The VM uses the selection mechanism to transfer the clipboard.  When  
you exit the VM the selection becomes disowned and X does not know to  
ask the VM for the selection when you restart it, even if no other app  
has claimed the selection in the meantime.  There are alternative  
mechanisms in Gnome, KDE, etc., but lots of people do not run those  

FWIW, I cannot reproduce this between Gedit and squeak on Ubuntu 9.10  
-- it works fine for me.  However there might be something in glipper  
that makes the selection mechanism play better with Gnome apps; have  
you tried installing it?

The beeps were for my benefit many years ago.  They are gone now.
