I cannot paste yanked data in search

The search entry window is basically a standard JTextField. You can paste into it from the clipboard, e.g. Ctrl-V. To yank to the clipboard use: "*y
Sorry, I thought that's what setting the Group to Request meant. But I think this would be ideal. Where would I submit a request?
In the source forge menu bar, under "Tracker", you see feature request in the menu.
I'll move this by changing the Tracker combo box in the bug state info.
