tracks changes in the server's cutbuffer and clipboard
selection. When the clipboard is changed, it updates the cutbuffer. When the
cutbuffer is changed, it owns the clipboard selection. The cutbuffer and
clipboard selection are always synchronized. Since the VNC client synchronizes
the Windows' clipboard and the server's cutbuffer, all three
"clipboards" are always kept synchronized. When you copy some text
in Windows, the cutbuffer and the clipboard selection are updated. When you
copy text on the server using either the cutbuffer or the clipboard selection,
the Windows's clipboard is always updated.
