[Rd] Minor Windows clipboard issue

I have a small problem in Windows RGui using Remote Desktop when the clipboard paste menu item becomes unexpectedly disabled.

I'm using Remote Desktop to connect from a Windows 2000 workstation client to RGui running on Windows Server 2003. After text is pasted to RGui from the client a couple of times, the "Edit : Paste" menu item becomes disabled when data should be available from the clipboard. Pasting of clipboard contents is disabled at that time for a local Notepad also. The paste menu item is re-enabled when the following happens:

  1. Cut/copy from a local application (remote paste remains disabled when attempted again).
  2. Disconnect and reconnect the remote desktop connection (remote paste becomes enabled).

A simple workaround is to paste into Notepad on the remote host, then cut/copy from the local Notepad into RGui.

I haven't located any useful material, but VNC and/or eclipse may also have (had) this problem.

I can't locate the VNC item.
