[Now on kf5 5.54, plasma-workspace 5.13, Fedora 28]
Klipper is disabled.
Both X and KDE clipboards are messed again, after 57 days of uptime. Ctrl-X
will cut, but Ctrl-V pastes whatever was left by the last non-KDE Ctrl-V (like
from Chrome). The X clipboard is not filled by highlighting either. This
happens to the main KDE apps I use: KMail, Konqueror, Konsole, and KAlarm. It
does not happen to non-KDE apps like SeaMonkey or Chrome. It's damned annoying
and ongoing for years.
