(bert) I can copy text in Russian or Japanese (for instance, from wikipedia) into Squeak, and it displays perfectly. I can copy the 'gibberish' that I typed and showed in the screenshot in my previous email into other programs, and it displays correctly in the other programs. However, if I try to copy correctly-display Japanese or Russian from Squeak into other programs, it simply doesn't work: the clipboard seems to be empty, and nothing is pasted when I click 'paste'.

(takashi) I thought I once have reproduced this bug. But it works perfectly today... It would be helpful if someone find how to reproduce the bug.

> From TRAC Ticket #8203 (bert, august 2008)
> Make a new project, switch to Nepali, drag out a star from supplies, get halo, copy the star's name (which is translated), paste into activity name. You get an "invalid utf-8" error.
> (yoshiki) There must be another factor involved here. On a very fresh 757 on a machine with English keyboard, I do exactly the same and am able to paste the Nepali phrase into the activity name. On Fedora 7 and 9, Takashi and I had some sporadic occurence of problem...
> ... This is also fixed by 2120zeroClipboardWorkaround-yo.
> ... Oh, but it is a workaround, so the primitive implementation should be revisited.
> (bert) Workaround tested working in 8.2-759.
