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.
