It is x-cut-buffer-or-selection-value.

It is.

It returns the same text that I get when using the middle button, which is
definitely not the text selected in Evolution. If I hit the middle button
over a shell window or gvim or whatever immediately afterwards, I get the
correct text, only Emacs doesn't show it.

Hey, don't worry too much about this. I have already found that although I
can't see the reason for this, it works with the other combination of
software versions for Emacs and Evolution I wrote about. So I'll just
upgrade the system I'm using now sometime and things will probably be fine

Of course, if you are curious and you have further ideas, I'll be happy to
test some more.
