I've given up on this. I have a perfectly fine Text editor for my
import window that works fine with Control-C, Control-V, Control-X,
Control-Z, and Delete. So trying to call these native handlers from a
right-click menu has caused all kinds of problems with firing off the
mouseDown messages. So I'll just add (answer "Use Control-C") messages
for menuPick items in the right-click menu.
