Indeed, the problem still exists with OpenOffice and LibreOffice, but
this must is a bug in OpenOffice because the selection received from X
doesn't match what was selected by mouse. This only happens with
PRIMARY clipboard (mouse selection), copying via CLIPBOARD selection
(Ctrl+C) doesn't have this problem. The problem also exists when
pasting to other non-Lazarus applications; copying from Lazarus app
into OpenOffice doesn't show any problems.

I have opened an issue:

I basically did the same as in LCLQT - make LCLGTK2 remove the
trailing zero. Also, conversion to COMPOUND_TEXT already indirectly
removed trailing zero.
