this test was mentioned in bug 474081 as one which could have issues...

So it could be a clipboard issue. At the very least, this test should probably poll instead of expect the value is on the clipboard, especially on linux. I just wrote a waitForClipboard helper in bug 567870, which should be usable here.

Though, it seems like the test would outright fail if it were a clipboard issue. Otherwise it could be a focus issue, though focus() is supposed to by sync which would instead cause this test to just fail.
Attached patch Patch (v1)Splinter Review
Fixed both problems.  Since this only has happened on Linux, we can't be sure which one has been the underlying cause, but anyway with this patch the test is robust (although the whitespace is messed up :-) )
