Description theosib 2012-02-21 19:06:54 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201202060400)
Operating System = Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_29
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 20.4-b02

I have found that copy/paste doesn't work on Windows between other editors and Netbeans in Windows.  If I enter text into, for instance, EditPlus or Wordpad, I cannot copy it from there and successfully paste into Netbeans.  Instead, what gets pasted in Netbeans is the last thing I copied FROM Netbeans.  I know I've successfully pasted into Netbeans in the past, so either this is a regression, or somehow Netbeans can get into a stuck state where it stops talking to the clipboard properly.

This, of course, makes it really hard to copy code from a web page into Netbeans.
