Is there anyway to copy text from an xterm window to another app with it spilling into your prompt?

Not sure what you mean by spilling into your prompt.

As an example, I wanted to copy the output of ls to another app and this is what happens

[loren@loren]$ ls
amsn-0.90-1.i386.rpm blob.pl.png downloads tmp
amsn_received Desktop evolution

[loren@loren]$ [loren@loren]$ ls
bash: [loren@loren]$: command not found
[loren@loren]$ amsn-0.90-1.i386.rpm blob.pl.png downloads tmp
bash: amsn-0.90-1.i386.rpm: command not found
[loren@loren]$ amsn_received Desktop evolution
bash: amsn_received: command not found
[loren@loren]$
