I was originally a River Habitat Surveyor in the UK but I drifted into GIS and its application in mapping and geo-processing of river habitat sites. I would now class myself as an ArcGIS desktop developer. I have spent over a decade developing tools in ArcObjects the building blocks of ArcGIS. As a home project and born out of my interesting in mapping data along rivers I developed RivEX a tool for processing river networks.

My work at GeoData has covered topics as diverse as satellite classification, forestry, census, marine traffic, historic monuments, cycle surveys, mobile mapping and numerous projects extracting and analysing river related information.

comment clipping ESRI shapefiles along with shx and dbf
Are you looking for a specific solution? You mention OGR so I guess you are not using ArcGIS/MapInfo as what you are asking would be trivial in those GIS systems. If you are looking for an open source solution then consider QGIS?

comment Adding description to layer using ArcMap?
OK that is odd behaviour, ArcMap/ArcCatalog should not be doing that. Try creating a new dataset, anything, then see if you can edit its metadata? If that works it would suggest the metadata data for your other dataset is corrupt. If your new dataset has the same problem then it would suggest that ArcGIS is corrupt or it's a Windows update that has upset things. Have you searched here for known issues?

Just run the tool I linked to on your input datasets so the spatial indices are built then run your code above.

comment Adding description to layer using ArcMap?
So you are in ArcCatalog, you are on the description tab looking at the default metadata, you click edit. Does the screen not change to allow you to edit the text? If so are you pressing save to commit the changes? I suggest you upload an image showing at what stage you are at?
