Not quite sure what, if any, point (or perceived point) are you intending to 
address there. Apols if being a bit dense on it.

You seem to be just (side-)describing something, rather than explicitly hooking 
into the user-reported issue; again, apols if am being dense on what you're 
saying or alluding to. Your original wording and its position, were more that of 
a contradiction, than that of a side- or additional comment; and as such, it 
seemed a bit misplaced.

Anyway, ... the overall goal was to if necessary get that info posted to list 
via, if possible, only a single copy-paste operation within the 'work'flow, so's 
to avoid any multiple copy-paste errors layering on top of each other, in case 
the problem is some weird one with the user's copy-paste mechanism(s) per se. 
(I agree with, aiui, Pierre's note that the copy-paste may be a long-shot; but 
it's worth checking - there's of course plenty of software/os/maus environments 
within which copy-paste does some 'value-added' stuff, like e.g. adding spaces 
to each copied-line as if they had been present all the way to right-side margin 
of window in which original source was being viewed  ;P  .)
