Simple Windows Form app which allows for demonstration of copy / paste

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:

I am having an issue with copy and paste between a mono application and other
applications.  I am able to copy and paste text from one field to another
within an app using the mono runtime.  However, the copied text is not
available to any other applications.  The same is true for pasting -- If I copy
text to the clipboard from an app and attempt to paste it into the mono runtime
app the copied text is not available.  It seems is an application specific
clipboard is being utilized instead of the system clipboard.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mono MonoCopyPateExample.exe
2. select some text in TextBox 1
2. Use ctrl-click on the text field to access copy/paste context menu
3. Click Copy
4. ctrl-click on the TextBox 2 text field
5. Click Paste
(Above demonstrates copy/paste working within the app.)
6. Launch any app capable of taking text input.  In my case I used TextEdit
7. ctrl-click in area capable of receiving text input
8. Select paste
Actual Results:  
You will not see the text you copied from the mono app.

Expected Results:  
It should have displayed the text copied from the mono app.

I've tried this in several different mono run time apps all with the same
