I don't understand what you mean, because for me copying from
OpenOffice to native QT app, or to Windows notepad under wine doesn't
give any problems. I have GTK 2.24.10, QT 4.7.4, wine 1.1.36.

I have checked 25 programs, copying from them and pasting to Lazarus
app, and copying from Lazarus app to them, and there was no
difference, whether trailing #0 was added by LCL or not. I tried
Lazarus app built with LCLGTK2 and then with LCLQT.

Also none of the programs I checked, except for AbiWord, added
trailing zero to the text copied to clipboard. I checked directly with
X using XConvertSelection.
