There was a report that Autocutsel does not work in 4.1, but I have just tested this and it works as expected (with the exception of a problem with Geany, described below).
Note that you do have to get the 'autocutsel' PET package out of the Puppy4 repo, not the Puppy3 repo, as the latter has a dependency on libXaw95.
Note also, there is a problem with Geany and the selection-buffer (nothing to do with autocutsel). Often if I highlight text in Geany, it does not go into the selection-buffer and cannot be pasted into rxvt. This is strange, inconsistent behaviour, and I am wondering if it has something to do with the version of Geany as I don't recall this problem before. Installing Autocutsel does not fix it. On the otherhand, I canconsistently highlight text in Abiword and paste it into rxvt.
I already rolled Geany back for Puppy 4.1, to version 0.12, as I wasn't happy with some features of 0.13. Perhaps I should test even older versions.
A note also on Autocutsel. I don't recommend it. It offer a minimal advantage (in my opinion) and has the disadvantage of adding noticeably to the background overhead of the CPU.

I use Sakura console program in place of rxvt. It is easier to use for cutting and pasting. It is bigger than rxvt, but for me, it is easier to use. It is a good replacement for rxvt.

Neat Geany Workaround
Open your file in Geany and highlight some text
Open a terminal and confirm that you cannot copy
Now, with the text still highlighted, in Geany
Now you can drop the text into the terminal!
