           Summary: Clipboard functionality across processes does not work
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20040408
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P1
         Component: wine-user
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: krishna.murthy at guptaworldwide.com

The Clipboard functionality across processes does not work. The data copied to 
the clipboard using SetClipBoardData() with any format(CF_TEXT, CF_BITMAP, 
etc) exists as long as the process which copied the data to Clipboard is 
active/alive. And will be cleared once the owner process is destroyed.

To see this issue, follow the steps given below:
- Start the attached sample Clipboard application (wine Clipboard.exe. 
Attached in ClipboardExe.Zip)
- Enter the data in the edit control. Highlight some text. Click on menu item 
Copy (This copies the data to clipboard with format CF_TEXT)
- Now see paste menu. This will be enabled and could paste the data. Also the 
other process could see this data and access for pasting purposes. Clicking on 
Paste menu item will paste the new data copied to clipboard.
- NOW close the application.

- Start the application again (wine Clipboard.exe)
- Now see the state of menu item Paste, which will be in Gray/Disable state. 
Meaning data is not available. Now the other process also cannot see the data!
