There's TightVNC and UltraVNC, but I haven't used either one so can't 
advise on clipboard capabilities.

Another option would be to use NoMachine's NX instead of VNC.  Pretty 
much identical capabilities as VNC, and it's supposed to be faster too. 
  I just verified that copy and paste from client to server works under 
NX (or at least it does when testing with two Linux+KDE machines).
