there appear to be some problems with recent development/snapshot
versions of emacs with respect to getting the X selections.  Org uses
these automatically within org-capture and, at best, causes long delays
in capturing anything and, at worst, doesn't work at all.

I have found that letting org only consider the PRIMARY and CLIPBOARD
selections sort of solves the problem for the time being:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
diff --git a/lisp/org-capture.el b/lisp/org-capture.el

         (v-c (and (> (length kill-ring) 0) (current-kill 0)))
         (v-x (or (org-get-x-clipboard 'PRIMARY)
                  (org-get-x-clipboard 'CLIPBOARD)
-                 (org-get-x-clipboard 'SECONDARY)))
+                 ;;(org-get-x-clipboard 'SECONDARY)
+                 ))
         (v-t (format-time-string (car org-time-stamp-formats) ct1))
         (v-T (format-time-string (cdr org-time-stamp-formats) ct1))
         (v-u (concat "[" (substring v-t 1 -1) "]"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I'm not suggesting this as a patch to org but only providing this for
anybody that may be having the problems I am having.
