Copy and Paste broken in 19.0.1

I frequently copy text from BBEdit (or any other Mac app) to a Windows terminal emulator running under CrossOver, and vice-versa. Suddenly I find it no longer works. A "paste" operation in emulator always pastes the last text that I "copy"ed in the emulator. It seems that Crossover isn't picking up the latest clipboard from the MacOS.

It works OK if I copy in a CrossOver program and paste into a Mac app.

It doesn't matter if I use CMD-V, Paste from then Edit menu, or a paste icon.

I'll try reverting back to 19.0.0.

I reverted to 19.0.0 (from Time Machine) and Copy(Mac) / Paste(Crossover) was still broken. It worked at first, but then did not.

I rebooted the Mac and it seems to work now. Not sure how long it will work or what causes it to go into the failing mode.
