When I copy some text from guest (Windows 7 SP 1) to my Mac host (OS X 10.8.2) , there is a hidden special character prepended to the text.

I already open ticket 7739 more than 2 year ago with no action.

Simular problem here. Linux host, windows XP guest.

When I view the orginal text in hex it only uses a 0A for end of line / return, but after copying the text via the clipboard I see on the guest 0D 0D 0A, causing the text to be mangled. I would have expected 0D 0A
