Description eb1 2012-05-09 02:15:28 UTC
Clipboard.SetDataObject() has a copy parameter. Passing true should put the data on the clipboard in a way that it is still there after the application exits.

The Mono implementation ignores this parameter. On X11 this causes the clipboard to be cleared when the application exits.
