not following this thread, but putting 30M in the clipboard is sure to
be a little, ummmm, strenuous. And pasting it somewhere doesn't remove
it from the clipboard, just copies into whatever poor app happened to
get the paste. So in theory, there are now three copies of that
monster clipboard floating around 1) in the original app, 2) in the
clipboard, and 3) in the new app. THat's 90M of extra stuff just
floating around in memory.
