Speaking of clipboards, I'm having some trouble in Windows. I found that 
if I have something on the clipboard and then I do some other action in 
the OS -- like launching an application -- the clipboard gets emptied. 
For example, I had some text on the clipboard, then I launched Rev, 
opened a stack, and tried to paste and the clipboard was gone. I thought 
it was a Rev bug, but when I repeated the experiment and opened Notepad 
instead, the same thing happened. But if both apps were already running, 
then the clipboard transfered over as long as I didn't do anything else 
in between. What makes that happen, and is there a workaround?
