Unfortunately, I have not been able to reproduce the bug
consistently. It "just happens". :)
I started to poke through the code, and wanted to get your thoughts
on this. In the copy: method in RQuartz.m, I replaced the following
[deviceView writePDFInsideRect:[deviceView bounds] toPasteboard:pb];
NSRect r = [deviceView bounds];
NSData *data = [deviceView dataWithPDFInsideRect:r];
[pb setData:data forType:NSPDFPboardType];
A very simple (non-exhaustive!) test showed that this code will copy
the pdf as expected. Behind the scenes, I don't know if this is any
different from what you have, but I'll run with this change for a
while to see if it happens again.
