Steps to repro: 1. start mozilla 2. copy the url or text in a displayed page. 3. paste into any text editor to see what it copied (should be what you expect) 4. copy text from some other application to the clipboard 5. repeat step 3 6. exit mozilla 7. repeat step 3 Expected results: Steps 5 and 7 should have identical results (and should be different than 3). Actual results: Step 7 is the same as step 3 less the last character. Exiting mozilla causes it to place what it last copied back onto the clipboard overwriting what any other app has placed there. And the last character gets chopped.
reassigning to pinkerton as P2 for M18, nominating for nsbeta3, correctness (data loss)

Target Milestone: --- → M18
Worse than that, on Win98, using today's verification build, I lose the entire clipboard buffer on exit, regardless of which app put it there. nsbeta3+, P2 for M18
on win2k, it is still as sean describes with today's win32 build (i.e., not only is the clipboard overwritten by mozilla on exit, but that last character is still truncated). on win95, I see what trudelle notes above (clipboard is empty on win95 mozilla exit). (For completeness, Mac and Linux (both clipboards) do not show either variation of this problem).
fixed, tested on win2k and win98. replace my own code with oleFlushClipboard().
