[Openmcl-devel] Hemlock seems to strip chars from the clipboard when deleting

1. Start up CCL. This appears in the Listener:

"Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.6-dev-r13940M-trunk  (DarwinX8664)!"

2. Double click on some text, e.g., Clozure (it becomes selected).

3. Perform a command-v (paste) and "Clozure" appears in the Listener.

4. Press the Delete key and remove all of Clozure.

5. Perform a command-v again (paste). Now only "zure" appears:

? zure

Doing this between different apps, also results in CCL/Hemlock 
removing 3 characters from the clipboard, e.g., copy some text from 
TextEdit, paste it into a Hemlock buffer, delete it, go back to the 
original app, and paste it there (now it's missing the 3 first 

Huh? Now only 1 character has gone missing? And sometimes nothing goes missing.

"Clozure" ==> "zure"
"TextEdit" ==> "Edit" (4 chars missing)
"Hemlock" ==> "lock"

What gives? Is this a known problem?
