One can use a search dialog to search for files by text. A list of found files is shown and one can open such file by F3 or F4. In this case searched text is automatically set to clipboard. I imagine this can be useful. But personally I find it restrictive - most of the time I need my clipboard intact for other things. I have to re-set my clipboard every time I open a searched file.
This patch is just a proposal to remove this feature and leave user's clipboard alone.
I understand this can also be a handy feature so I'm prepared to make an option for it. In such case I suggest adding a persistent (survives restart) checkbox e.g. next to "profiles" button (bottom left) in search dialog. Any other suggestions? :)
