I've seen the same thing, but assumed that I was overflowing the clipboard
in X. So as an experiment, I tried to paste large chunks of text between
Mozilla & rxvt. It appears that large chunks of text -- above approximately
4000 bytes -- also cause the same result.

I know rxvt & aterm share a lot of code. Maybe the problem lies there.
