Is there a reason gdk_display_get_default() is used? Ronnie noted, that this function is only available from GTK2.2
On my machine:

disp = gdk_display_get_default();
cb = gtk_clipboard_get_for_display (disp,GDK_SELECTION_CLIPBOARD);

(available only in GTK2.2) works the same way as:

cb = gtk_clipboard_get(GDK_SELECTION_CLIPBOARD);

and the later will also work on GTK2.0

So is there a reason to use gdk_display_get_default()? Otherwise we could use the gtk_clipboard_get() function which is working on all GTK2.x versions.
BTW: Do you have any additional infos on this clipboard thing?
