#5221 closed defect (obsolete)

copy/paste from various clients to Mac host appends a NULL character to the text

Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

I've encountered this problem using Mac OS 10.6.1 as the host and a Windows XP Professional client with the Guest Additions installed. Another user encountered it with a Mac host and both Ubuntu and Solaris clients.

When I copy text inside the client and paste it in the host, a NULL character is appended to the text. This seems to be independent of the client and host apps involved.

In many cases, the NULL character goes unnoticed, but it has a disastrous effect in Thunderbird. Thunderbird truncates the message at the NULL character and all text after it is lost.

This was first described in the forums:
