    I'm not sure what causes it, but I've seen it on a couple of websites as well.
    Most recently, the Hamilton County Tennessee Register of Deeds website -
    specifically the online records search web application, which is using
    Silverlight and is the point where you log in. I had chalked that up as a
    quirk of Silverlight. I think the other one might have been a web application
    as well.

    For what it's worth, PWSafe V3.28 (4783), Windows 7 Pro, SP 1.0, Internet
    Explorer 9.0.8112.16421 64-bit.

    Yeah, it's a website-specific thing, nothing to do with PasswordSafe. Some
    sites apparently think that by not accepting paste operations, they're more
    secure. Go figger.

    I'm finding an increase in sites with forms that disable "right-click/paste"
    in the password field, but do allow <Ctrl V=""> (e.g., Bank of America "Works"
    business VISA site). That really makes no sense...
