Hi.

Same piece of text from gedit works (directly opening the file in gedit).
>From jedit it crashes.
>From jedit, I have been able to paste into my terminal window, OpenOffice
and any other application (even Firefox, on other sites like my internal
Trac site). It works everywhere except gmail in Firefox.

I saw a previous bug about AJAX based input boxes. Is this related to
that?

I tried changing the encoding of my buffer (in jedit) which I test to cut
and paste. Changing from utf8 to ascii there, does not get rid of the crash.

If I use some thai text, and I cut and paste that from gedit to the gmail,
that works as well - so maybe its nothing to do with the encoding.

So in summary:
1) Crash seen only in gmail in firefox, when cutting and pasting from jedit.
2) Cutting pasting from jedit to other input boxes on other sites (tested
only trac for now, but have done this before in the past) using firefox
works.
3) Cutting pasting from jedit to other apps works fine (have tested this in
the past with just pure ascii as well as non ascii content).
4) Cutting pasting from other sources like gedit, openoffice or the terminal
window, to firefox+gmail works fine (ascii content tested, non ascii tested
only with gedit).

Hope the above is useful.
