using debug build with code from last night (9/29/99) on WinNT, I can copy/paste from the editor/Gfx text controls just fine. But if I copy from the editor and try to paste into another application, nothing happens.

Windows clipboard issue -- assigning to Rod for diagnosis.
just tried it, and it works for me, however i noticed that sometimes the last character is dropped. how do we want to deal with this bug in relation to the last one?
please stop assigning these to rod.
it seems to be a matter of paste not working correctly into other apps after mozilla has quit. while mozilla is running, paste works perfectly (no chars dropped, etc).

i don't think this is a regression, per se, since i'm pretty sure the code hasn't changed. my bet is that it never worked correctly. we're probably not calling ForceDataToClipboard() when the app quits on win32. removing "regression" from the summary and updating to the correct cause.
Yes, I am sure this is not being called because of XP issues. I had it working at one time, then it got a little confusing about who owned what and when to put it there etc. I think the issue was knowning when to do the force to clipboard. Is there a notification for that, Steve? Mike, if you want me to help take a look at the Win code on Monday if you want.

fix checked into the end of main to flush data to the clipboard before app shuts down.
works now in 11/ 4 build...I conducted simple test: copy from ender and paste into windows notepad...
