- Copied a string from TextEdit
- Inserted text into writer window using Command+v -> ok
- Inserted text into File Picker -> nothing happens.

Reassign to pl, target 3.1

Tricky. The problem is that OOo does not have the default menus but builds its
own. Therefore the normal actions (e.g. copy, paste) are not bound to the normal
actions and therefore the selected menu item CMD-V goes to nowhere.

I worked around this by sending "cut", "copy" and "paste" actions to
NSApplication (which passes them to the currently focused control eventually) on
CMD-X, CMD-C and CMD-V respectively if a non vcl window (like the file dialog or
one of its panels) is the key window.

This is only possible, because these shortcuts are not localized and - to my
knowledge - not really configurable on the system. If one of these assumptions
does not hold true, this hack will fail.

fixed in CWS vcl97
