Invalid content when using xclip

I tried to use xclip to integrate MC with X clipboard. I added to ini these lines:

clipboard_store=xclip -i -selection clipboard
clipboard_paste=xclip -o -selection clipboard

Then when I select some text in MC, press ctrl+insert and try to paste also in MC (shift-insert) I receive some old content from X selection. But if I copy in another allpication and paste in MCV, or reverse - copy in MC and paste in another application - all works.

I installed git version e608f9cefe6400ec02d2fc906dd63b3ed0bda651.

mc -V output:

so... you cant use "shift-insert"
try start

$ cat

press ctrl-insert
you'l see "^[[2;5~" or like this...

but if you press shift-insert... terminal just insert text from clipboard...

you can use ctrl-v for paste...

and i have solution for xterm

  1. create file

with follow

XTerm*VT100.Translations: #override \
    Shift  <Key>Insert: string(0x1b) string("[2;2~")
  1. restart xterm, start 'cat'

if after shift-insert you see "[[2;2~" WIN! else return step 1.

have a nice day :)

Oh, thanks! I already figured out that it's XTerm, but was unable to invent config to unbind this. Thanks again!
