Copied text lost after Komodo is closed (Linux) #534
9.2.0 Linux. Cannot reproduce in Windows.
This only occurs for text copied from within KE and only from KE editors/buffers. The clipboard is unaffected if the copy occurred in another program before closing KE. Also, I can copy the text from a textbox in Preferences and the text is available to paste after closing KE.
