Specifies the server time at which the selection value is to be modified. This should be the time of the event which triggered this request. One source of a valid time stamp is the function XtLastTimestampProcessed().

This function returns False if the primary selection is NULL, if the widget does not own the primary selection, if the function is unable to gain ownership of the clipboard selection, or if no data is placed on the clipboard. Otherwise, it returns True.
