Those numbers looked familiar to me so i opened the Unicode Arabic chart to find that:
the unicode for alef is 0x0627 "compare with \x{o627}, lam is 0x0644 "compare with \x{0644}"
it seems that Gtk2 applications "not from the katoob side, since it request from gtk to copy the text to the clipboard"
are copying text as UCS-4 encoded
but i didn't find any info about the X clipboard specifications, so i can tell is it a problem with gtk or Qt or both!!
i'll still search for that...

I tried copying from galeon to licq "Qt app" but all what i got was a bunch of "??????" perhaps it's a font issue
but i don't have any KDE app available, so the only one i found was LICQ
