It seems that if you are making an application in LiveCode where a user
can copy from 3rd party apps and paste into your LiveCode app, you
almost have to add a routine to scrub the clipboard data of any
"problem" data - which sees to be any non printable characters - or
I thought one of the differences between clipboardData,
fullClipboardData, and rawClipboardData was that LC 'scrubbed' the
contents to ensure the correct format for the key used, but I have not
found that to be the case.
I think enough people run into clipboard problems when developing in LC
that some overhaul of the LC code for interacting with the clipboard is
warranted to improve reliability.
