What OS is Geany running on? Does any other GTK+ applications' (ex. 
GIMP, Pidgin, etc) clipboards work in this environment? If both ends are 
running Windows, you could probably use some other VNC program (like the 
builtin Remote Desktop feature in Windows) and just run Geany natively 
on the remote machine, this should not show any issues with the clipboards.
