[Rd] Minor Windows clipboard issue

I have a small problem in Windows RGui using Remote Desktop when the
clipboard paste menu item becomes unexpectedly disabled.
I'm using Remote Desktop to connect from a Windows 2000 workstation
client to RGui running on Windows Server 2003. After text is pasted to
RGui from the client a couple of times, the "Edit : Paste" menu item
becomes disabled when data should be available from the clipboard.
Pasting of clipboard contents is disabled at that time for a local
Notepad also. The paste menu item is re-enabled when the following happens:
1. Cut/copy from a local application (remote paste remains disabled
when attempted again).
2. Disconnect and reconnect the remote desktop connection (remote
paste becomes enabled).
A simple workaround is to paste into Notepad on the remote host, then
cut/copy from the local Notepad into RGui.
I haven't located any useful material, but VNC and/or eclipse may also
have (had) this problem.
I can't locate the VNC item.
