First, I'm sure it's not a cut buffer.  :-)

Second, there's a way to register a callback on the PRIMARY selection
(what it is instead of a cut buffer ;-).  Look in the standard
distribution xclipboard application for how it's done (that app uses
the CLIPBOARD selection, however).  Motif also has a clipboard, but
its protocol is fairly complicated.  You'd also want to check the
ICCCM.  I don't think there are any gotchas if you just want to get
the selection, but you should check.
