Well, I committed it (r5636) but... reverted it as r5640. It initially
look good, but breaks the X PRIMARY clipboard (aka the mouse one) in the
normal Geany editor (even after unsplitting), so it's not acceptable.

We need a better fix then. Maybe you can try to find out why the X
clipboard get broken on Scintilla (and fix it :D). If it get fixed, we
will probably can re-apply the patch.
