Since enabling e10s in nightly, Middle-click cut and paste doesn't work.

Windows-style ctrl-c, ctrl-v cut and paste does work. If something's in the paste buffer from a ctrl-c, middle click will paste it. However, making a new selection does not change the contents of the middle-click paste buffer.

Attached patch patch v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This was bothering me enough that I had to fix it. This is the most straightforward way of solving this bug (as far as I know). I thought about simply adding two more sync functions that we always call, but the return values of these functions will never change, so I decided to avoid that.

Attached patch patch v1.1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Unified builds struck me. I wasn't 'using' enough from mozilla::dom in the previous patch for the nsClipboardProxy.cpp to compile by itself.

I *think* this broke on B2g linux desktop. Especially since the failure is in Clipboard. Can you take a look?
Attached patch followup fix for b2g (obsolete) — Splinter Review
I'd assumed that our clipboard proxy was the only nsIClipboard implementation in child processes. That was not true, thanks to b2g.  With this patch, we can be sure to not crash if we're talking to the wrong child-process clipboard implementation.
