*This* definitely is fixed; there may be (in fact, clearly there are)
other related or similar problems that are not fixed - but the one I was
describing is definitely fixed.
Here's a recipe which reliably works in 2.6, and reliably fails in 2.5
Go into an editor - any editor - and copy some test into the clipboard.
Start up Rev
Hit Ctrl-M to open message box
Hit Ctrl-V to paste.
Fails every time in 2.5, works every time in 2.6
In 2.5 you could open (and then close if you wanted) a script editor and
pasting would *sometimes* then work.

In my problem / description / recipe, the active menubar is the main
menu bar, which contains the copy, paste commands.

Nope - see above.
