This is just a short note, in case no one noticed. Or this is just the hint you were looking for, just a I was yesterday.
Copy and paste of a selection from gimp into Star Office works with The Gimp 2.2 and newer.
Well this is really old news, and it is documented in the gimp docs, see http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-introduction-history-2-2.html.
I just had to look that up as my wife wondered why it did not just work with The Gimp 2.2, which comes preinstalled with Solaris. Blastwave has a prepackaged 2.4.3 for you.
As an administrator for a Solaris home production system, you sometimes have to face these challenges...
