Description of Problem:
I'm using a System.Windows.Forms.RichTextBox with a .Net 2.0 application. I'm
trying to get the selected text :
System.Windows.Forms.RichTextBox.SelectedText, with a shortcut (Ctrl+C) in a
Context Menu on that RichTextBox. When I debug with Visual Studio 2008, the
SelectedText property gives only the text. In mono, it gives the Rtf of that
text (not only the text).

Steps to reproduce the problem:
* create a .net 2.0 winform application,
* add a RichTextBox and put some text in that textbox
* associate a context menu strip to that rich textbox
* add a menu item 'copy' associated with the Ctrl+C shortcut
* add a click event on that menu item which makes
"Clipboard.SetText(richTextbox.SelectedText, TextDataFormat.Text);"
* run the application
* select a part of the text you've put in the rich textbox
* paste it in gedit (for example)

Actual Results:
the actual result is something like this (copy/paste from my application) :
{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fcharset0 Courier New;}}
{\*\generator Mono RichTextBox;}\pard\f0\fs16 ------server log word rewind

Expected Results:
------server log word rewind done------

How often does this happen?

Additional Information:
I'm using the mono-2-4 branch.
