Just highlight the text you want to copy with the mouse, then switch to
the appropriate window and press the middle mouse button to paste.

Technically, this is a feature of xterm, not of tn5250... but it works.

The Windows and GTK versions of TN5250 have more full-featured copy/paste
functions (and they're actually features of TN5250!)

There's also the patch that Marek recently posted.  That adds copy/paste
functionality to tn5250 as well -- though I haven't tried it.  I have
a feeling that it only allows copy/paste to other tn5250 sessions.
