Along those lines, I have found a reliable way to reproduce the  
clipboard corruption problem:

1.  Open a listener.

2.  Type "12345", select and copy it

3.  Paste.  This should work.

4.  Hit delete three times.  You should have deleted "345".  Fewer  
deletes don't seem to produce the problem.

5.  Paste.  This should still work, i.e. you should have pasted  
"12345" again.  Your command line should now read "123451212345"

6.  Repeat steps 4 and 5.  On my machine, the contents of the  
clipboard are now "5345" instead of "12345".

I'd love to know if other people are able to reproduce this.
