bug#42152: 26.3; Stuck on saving "Clipboard to x clipboard Manager"

Sarthak Adhikari
In the emacs -Q window, I did the following:
1) Type the text "asd"
2) C-a to set the marker at the first character
3) C-e  to set the marker till the last character
4) C-w to kill the region
5) C-x C-c to exit emacs 

After performing step 5, my emacs editor displays "Saving clipboard to X Clipboard manager..." and stops responding. I have to manually perform a "kill -9" from the terminal to quit emacs if it stops responding this way. 

My init.el only has one entry:
(setq x-select-enable-clipboard t)

Killing text from emacs and pasting in on other applications(for eg: Chrome) works fine. The problem only occurs when I try to exit emacs and the problem only occurs on those sessions in which I had killed text from within emacs.

I'm unable to reproduce this here.

It sounds strange to me that no one else have seen such a major bug in
such basic functionality.  Could there be something peculiar in your
setup that is causing this?

Best regards,
