The paste function does not reproduce text as copied from other programs. Because of the previous problem I submitted about spell checking, I use MS Word to create message and paste them into ThunderBird when I am unsure of spelling. When I copy from Word to message, it double spaces lines.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy from MS Word
2.paste into ThunderBird
Actual Results:  
see above

Expected Results:  
Exact representation of what was copied when it is text only. CR/NL should be normal, not double spaced.
Does it happen with other programs too? I think it's the "from-application" who is responsible for what it puts on the clip board. 
Summary: Paste function → Paste from ms word gives double spaces lines

No. ThunderBird is the only application that responds in this way. I can paste into Notepad or OpenOffice Writer without this issue, although Writer has its' own aspects when handling cr/nl.
Could something like be happening when we are pasting from word.

Roger do you still have the issue ?

-> Incomplete due to lack of information. Please reopen if the issue still occurs in the latest Thunderbird trunk builds giving reasons why.
