I'm using Parcellite with synchronized clipboards and I ran into a funny problem: I can't use clipboard for renaming a file with Nautilus. Anytime I press F2 the basename of the file gets selected thus overwriting my clipboard content. I can't even use Parcellite's history, since pressing CtrlAltn open the history window, lets me re-select what I want, but Nautilus loses focus and the rename action is over. How to solve it?

Is there a clipboard manager having a key combination allowing to scroll through the clipboard history, similar to Alty (yank-pop) in Emacs?
