weirdness with copied data from google spreadsheets

If I copy something like the below from a Google Docs spreadsheet and try
to paste it into an LC field, I get one string, no CRs, no spaces other
than between "Sales" and "Rate" etc. I've looked at the
clipboarddata["text"] and clipboarddata["html"] and seen nothing that
helps. And yet I can paste here in gmail, and it looks like the below. If I
paste into Sublime Text it comes out as lines, with tabs. I can then copy
*that* and paste into LC with no problem. Any ideas?
