There is currently no way to copy text to the clipboard unless the text is being edited. Among others, this is a problem in the browser. An example case is when a link has been posted to a forum(not as a hyperlink).
The clipboard also fails in browser text fields, which have limited text editing, and from non-editable text in pages. EDIT: Non-editable text in browser can now be selected and copied in update Iijoki 220.127.116.11
Also, text copied from Android apps cannot be pasted to native apps. EDIT: released in update 10 Vaaraainjärvi.
EDIT: Clipboard improving system-wide from 18.104.22.168 and in previous releases. Use this question to voice specific issues:

Where is the source code for the clipboard so we can try to locate the persistent problems with it? Please provide a link to the GUI code and the variables or memory area to which the clipboard GUI refers (apparently wrongly at least some of the time)
