Search for what is currently in the clipboard (that was not
necessarily selected in nedit). And then Ctrl-Shift-H to search

ie: select something in xterm for make error output/ complex find grep
thing, move mouse/Alt-Tab press Ctrl H.  Very VERY handy, either that
or I have just become addicted to it! :)

'*' sort of does this in vi but is sort of limited to single words
without various cutbuffer vim hacks. (that I am aware of).
