LC Clipboard Polling Hang: Reported yet?

I'm seeing a hang in LC 9.x when
accessing the clipboard repeatedly.
(Including LC 9.6.5 RC 2.)

No precise recipe yet; that comes next,
if this hasn't been reported yet.

I accessing clipboardData["text"]
maybe 1800 times, with the data
on the clipboard changing 200 times.

Finally LC breaks down
in two distinct steps:

1. clipboardData["text"] stops
reporting the current data.

(But LC is usable and can still
even SET the clipboardData.)

2. Then LC itself hangs up;
have to End Task.

Sound familiar anyone?
If so, what Bug #?
If not, I'll report it.

Best wishes,
