LO Writer Will Not Paste External Clipboard Correctly  edit

Copy from external program to paste into LO Writer does not work.

Can cut from LO Writer then paste OK but I cannot copy from Firefox or Chromium browser or any external program (like Notepad+) into LO Writer.

Copy from external program using menu or control-C and pasting into LibreOffice Writer does not update LO clipboard, when I use "paste" or Ctrl-v the LAST copied data in LO gets pasted, not the newly copied data.

If I open a text program like Kate I can paste, I can paste into Firefox or Chromium, but when I go to LO Writer, I cannot paste the new clipboard, only the last previously copied data in LibreOffice. If I go to another program (as previously stated) I do get the new data.

LibreOffice Writer Version: Build ID: 6.2.1-1 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.0; UI render: default; VCL: kde5; Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US Calc: threaded

5.0.2-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Mar 14 18:47:49 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy LibreOffice Writer
2. Copy from another program 
3. Paste into Libreoffice Writer - the copy from LibreOffice Writer (step #1) will paste, not the copy from #2)

Actual Results:
Last Copy from LibreOffice will be pasted.

Expected Results:
External Copy should paste into LibreOffice Writer.

Reproducible: Always
