From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020417 BuildID: 2002041722 I am using solaris 8, and this has been happening for a few weeks worth of builds now, though I couldn't tell you exactly when the first instance was. Sometimes when I compose an email and try to copy / paste text in from a terminal the paste will fail. Eventually the text will deceide it is going to let itself be pasted (having tried select then middle mouse button paste, copy / paste on the keyboard and trying to use paste within Mozilla (menu)). The mail is received with the pasted item (usually a directory path, so they can be quite long) cut, allong with everything following it. Also the mail is corrupted in the same way in the sent folder. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Feel lucky (or unlucky, depending on your viewpoint) 2. Compose a mail with a long pasted item (which took a lot of effort to paste. 3. Observe the corruption in sent / the received mail Actual Results: Mail is cut off past the long, difficult to paste line. Expected Results: Sent the whole email :)
Using build 2002041722 I have turned on the debugging outputs. I just recreated the bug.

can you still reproduce the problem with a recent mozilla build as 1.1beta?
This is not something I have seen recently :)

OK, seen it again just now. I think it is a general Solaris 9 flaking out problem because I had a terminal open (for weeks) that stopped accepting pastes from the middle mouse button, but was OK for paste key pastes.
Verifying based on we have no reproducible case here in lab and reporter stated it may be a general Solaris flakieness and resolve this as fixed. Verified.
