Area cannot handle large strings
I have XML output in a log file that is around 9942 characters long. I need to paste this to a form in order to resubmit it during testing. I can do this in Konquerer but Mozilla and Galeon simply don't allow cut and paste data this big. If I break it up a bit I can get all bust the last 100 or so characters in.

John, are you still experiencing this problem? Can you reproduce it with a current copy of mozilla? What program is the data source for this paste operation? Bug 155140 comment 6 contains a rather extensive writeup of cutting & pasting between various applications; there it seemed that gnome applications were the main source of trouble rather than mozilla.
I can reproduce this on Red Hat 9. I try to copy a large amount of text from any editor (gvim, gedit, vim, OpenOffice, etc) and it won't paste into a Mozilla text area. If I only select a small amount of text (say 20 lines of text) it works. If I open the text file in Mozilla and copy a large amount of text to the text area it works. I can copy large amounts of text back and forth between all the available editors on Red Hat 9 but when I try to copy to Mozilla text area it fails. No error - just nothing - as if there was nothing in the clipboard. I tried the nightly build (v 1.4b) today and it still doesn't work.
Since over 1 month no answer from the reporter, so closing bug as wfm. If the bug exists in newer builds (1.4 final) then look for a similar bug or reopen this bug.
