Confirming for 4.6.1 (Gentoo).
Confirming for 4.6.1 OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64
The most annoying bug in KDE ever, for any keyboard-oriented worker.
Is this the same bug as reported with bug #267064?
Also I think the reported behaviour "Actual Results: nothing" is not exactly correct as the entry is selected, even if you do not see it.
Confirmed on Fedora 14 (KDE 4.6.1). Very annoying.
(and what is the checkmark supposed to mean???)
That the entry is the current clipboard.
Confirmed on Fedora 14. Confirmed that the entry is selected and in the current clipboard (you can past it). Esc will close the menu, and the menu entry "More" is hidden after pressing enter. Very annoying indeed.
I think somebody must clean up the heap around the bug.
1. In summary the phrase "doesn't close poppup windows" should be added.
2. Next bugs should be closed as duplicates: 264762, 265616, 265782 & 267064.

Confirmed on Kubuntu 11.04, KDE 4.6.2, exactly same as described in comment#7
Confirmed on Gentoo, KDE 4.6.4.
I can reproduce the bug on Fedora 14 and Fedora 15.
What is going on? This bug persists now for HALF A YEAR. It is _EXTREMELY_ annoying and clearly not a rocket science to fix. Hey? Anybody there, Klipper developers? Will it bug persist in 4.7? Or now that is important only smartphone and tablet users, who needn't keyboard interface at all?
it's open source, you can fix it by yourself.

No I can not. I have not enough skill, I never programmed GUI. With such attitude, don't then position KDE as desktop environment for a user, say clear - "KDE, a desktop environment for C++ GUI hackers" This will be honest at least.
P.S. And yes, I contribute both my time/code to FOSS where my skills fit. _And_ money, BTW, I donate KDE regularly.
Comments like 18,19,20 are not very helpful. The thing is that the maintenance of Klipper is currently very sporadic, and a lot of stuff has broken. You are not being ignored, it's just that noone with the right skills and the time for it has come by to fix it. Shouting in the bug reports won't help. Sorry, I know this is an annoying bug.
A silly workaround is pressing Enter and then Esc.

In addition, people who absolutely don't like that little annoyance could try parcellite, as long as they are not allergic to gtk+.

Well, I did some analysis. This bug was introduced as another side effect of dbusmenu being disabled for Klipper since KDE SC 4.6(more precisely, commit 102a17ca9ed87ef313865ec2b23569f6915ad652). See bug 260830 for more information.
The good news is I find this bug can be fixed in a not-so-elegant way.
Git commit 3918ecbd1d8d41da5926c5b3d8360635d79bfdd8 by Jekyll Wu.
Committed on 27/12/2011 at 10:32.
Pushed by jekyllwu into branch 'KDE/4.8'.
Pressing 'Enter' should close the popup menu after selecting item
This fix is not that elegant, but currently I can't figure out a better
way. From a pragmatic perspective, it is better to fix it now in a ugly
way than waiting for the elegant solution. It has been broken for one

Jekyll, I know I'm late commenting on this, but I just got a chance to test this out on KDE 4.8 and it works great now. Thanks a bunch for fixing it.
