I have been looking at this again and it seems that from time to time I
can, when working on the windows side, copy text to the clipboard and
subsequently paste it into other Windows software but WinClip, on the VA
side, doesn't recognise it as text and behaves in the way I have
described. I don't recall having seen this behaviour before but I now
have enough insight to be able to live with it.
