Address clipboard attack #14

Copy to clipboard was requested and implemented.
But we at least need to warn users that there is a potential attack-vector here - some malicious app could listen to the clipboard and if it detects some ethereum-address - it could replace it with its own and try to steal money this way.
We could also listen for the clipboard our-self and detect such a malicious pattern and give the user some extra warning - that would also cover incoming addresses.
Thanks to @schildbach for the input regarding this problem
