Interesting. I took a closer look at the bug report and found this:

> If I disable clipboard sharing in RDP it works without problems.
> If I copy something into the clipboard after establishing the connection but before invoking the code it works without problems.

Petr, do you have any comments about this? Perhaps we should fix the 
stack trace origin issue under a separate bug id, and leave this bug 
open to address the original clipboard-shared-over-RDP issue?

best regards,
