When I paste I expect the second description of \200 eight-bit to land on
*scratch* buffer. What I get is anything but that. For example, in the
following quote block after //[paste 3] there is no way I can copy and
paste the details of \200 eight-bit to there. What is pasted is an
earlier copy of anything else in the kill ring. If it isn't an Emacs
problem then maybe the clipboard mechanism on XQuartz/darwin is bung.
