I heard Stephen Boulet said:

Okay, it seems to work here (I just did the imports outside the function 
calls, since doing it inside functions is -bad- practice). What is your 
problem exactly?

Also, I discovered that the QClipboard.setText() call freezes Klipper, 
which in turns 'freezes' X (mouse and keyboard events are not 
processed); I have to switch to a console and kill Klipper. Does 
anybody have any idea what's up?
