paste_selection still says

/* Insert the contents of the selection buffer into the
* queue of the tty associated with the current console.
* Invoked by ioctl().
* Locking: called without locks. Calls the ldisc wrongly with
* unsafe methods,

from which I deduce that with everyone using X nobody ever bothered to
fix it. So before you look too hard at the speakup code you might want to
review the interaction with selection.c too.
