Thanks for asking this, because these are the items that have the
"multiplier" effects on community productivity (which I was trying,
clumsily, to allude to in meeting the other day).

I sure wish more folks were experiencing this one, merely for sake of
reproducibility for someone who might know to fix it.. :(
So far, the Mantis report indicates only Jerome, myself and laza have
experienced the problem.
Cut and paste text *between* two running Squeak images loses the
line-endings. Anyone else out there have that problem?
Here is another question: Can you copy text in a workspace, exit the
image *without* saving it, re-launch it, and paste the text you
copied? I can't. It looks like maybe the clipboard is saved with the
There is one more bit of information about cut and paste;
- the *first* time I copy text to the clipboard while in Squeak, the
computer beeps at me, but not on subsequent copies to the clipboard
during that image session. I was wondering whether the beep was in
some error-handler or something. When I paste the "beeped copied"
text, I get a Beep on the paste too. Paste paste paste = beep beep
- However, if I copy text *again*, it does not beep, and nor do
those pastes beep. Weird!
Cut and paste seems to work pretty well in my other Linux apps, just
not Squeak.. :(
If it's only me and a few others, this isn't a show-stopper for 4.1.
Hopefully the cause will turn up someday..
