Thank for the quick replies! I checked the tray icon "configure hot key" and the "paste clipboard' verb is mapped to Ctrl-Alt-V -- just like in the main app. However, I clicked 'restore defaults' and the problem went away. Hmmm.... Most likely a PEBKAC (problem exists between keyboard and chair :-) problem, but it sure was strange. Thanks again. PS Kudos to the authors of the program, if they are reading this... I've been using about a week to sync install notes between many physical and virtual machines and my droid -- and loving it.
