Summary: copy & paste doesn't work when saving incoming files

Initial Comment:
While using the Windows port of gAIM:

Copying and pasting into the text box does not work if text is copied from the 
gAIM message window.  Neither the right-click menu nor CTRL-V work to paste 
text into the box.  (Maybe this is an issue that should be filed for GTK 
instead? )

1.  Copy the text from the gAIM message window.
2.  Paste the text outside of gAIM (e.g., in wordpad)
3.  Re-copy the text from wordpad
4.  Paste into the filename box with CTRL-V.

It would be nice if gAIM had a function to automatically put the filename in 
the text input box.  Filename is absent when saving incoming files.  File names 
have to be manually input in the text box.

Please use gaim or Gaim. Not GAIM, and especially not gAIM.

The bug (the name of the file being sent not being put in the textbox of
the file-selection dialog) has been fixed for the next release.

Since you are talking about wordpad, I am assuming you are using Windows.
The copy-paste problem might be an issue with GTK+ in Windows. There is an
issue in GTK+ (in linux, at least) where the copied text cannot be pasted
if you have closed the window you copied from before pasting. Is this the
case you are seeing?

I am in the same situation with gaim 2.0.0beta5 on windows.
gaim in previous versions was automatically proposing file names during
file transferts and it no longer does that. Too bad it was a nice feature

I'm having the same problem with the copy/paste function. I'm using the
windows port version 2.0 beta 5. 

I can copy text from a gaim window and paste into other apps. 
I can copy text from other apps and paste into a gaim window. 
I cannot, however, copy text from a gaim window and then paste directly
into a gaim window.
