Can not copy/paste from Excel 2010 in Win7 guest to Mac 10.7.1 host

With Office 2010 installed in a Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise guest running on Mac OS X 10.7.1

If I copy something created in Word 2010, I can successfully paste it into any application on the Mac side. (Notepad also works -- the VBox.log file contains that action.)

However, for Excel 2010 and PowerPoint 2010, I can copy, but not paste into any application on the Mac side. I can copy *from* the Mac side into Excel/Powerpoint -- but just not the reverse.

the VM is set for "bi-directional" and is running the 4.1.2 guest additions. I reinstalled the guest additions before filing this bug with no difference.

I posted this to the forums here:

with one other user indicating they can reproduce the problem.

Please let me know if you need any additional information.
