Please could you describe the problem better:

  • which host OS
  • which guest OS
  • what is the size of the clipboard?

I have this issue, though I think it is a little trickier than "has size [of] previous clipboard".

VBox == 2.0.2 PUEL Host OS == Windows XP SP3 Guest OS == Ubuntu 8.04

Repro steps:

  1. Guest -- file "clip-in", size 127 bytes, filled with "A"
  2. Send to clipboard with: xclip -selection clip -i < clip-in
  3. Host -- open Notepad, Edit => Paste, get 127 "A", good so far
  4. Host -- select text in Notepad, Edit => Copy
  5. Guest -- paste from clipboard with: xclip -selection clip -o > clip-out

Expected: contents of clip-out should be 127 "A", identical to clip-in Get instead: 768 bytes file, starting with the expected "A"s followed by junk

Size of output is proportional 6:1 to input -- when I send through 64 "A"s instead, I get 396 bytes out; using 255 "A"s results in 1542 bytes out.
