Summary: [PP] In compose window, copy and paste text to Body causes crash
Steps to reproduce:
1. From Messenger, click on New Msg to open the Compose window
2. Fill in the To: and Subject fields
3. High-light the text from the Subject field
4. Press on both the left and right mouse simultaneously
Actual result, apprunner crashes
Expected result: In Nova, this pastes the high-lighted text to the Body of the
Compose window. I expect seamonkey does the same like Nova. Even if it does not,
it should not crash.
This occurs to Linux only

Here is the stack trace:

Good find.  Does this occur in the Editor (not mail compose)?  cc: sspitzer.

Also, is this HTML or plain text mail compose?

Yes. The same crash and same stack trace occurs when I do a copy and paste in
the editor.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run apprunner
2. From the Tasks menu, select Editor to open an Ender page
3. Type a line of text
4. High-light part of the text
4. Press on both the left and right mouse simultaneously, the same crash happens

Pavlov had a crash in clipboard code which he fixed today.  Pav, is this the
crash you were talking about?  Fenella, you might want to try again with
Thursday's build and see if it's fixed.
