Was referred to here from a gis.stackexchange.com question I asked. Here's the gist of the question. Makes for a good bug report.

I recently wrote a little helper script for georeferencing that used mac's pbcopy shell command to dump some text into my clipboard for use in the QGis program. For some reason I'm not able to paste stuff (longitude & latitude) that has been pbcopy'd into my clipboard into the Geoferencer plugin on qgis. I recently discovered that I can paste the text into other elements of the native qgis program, but not the plugin. The text can similarly be pasted into any other program.

So I think this has something to do with the way the Georeferencer plugin was written in Python, what with its somewhat unique at times deep bindings into the low levels of the operating system. Maybe some python devs could assist here. Thanks!

paste where? Does it happens only on OsX? (note: the georef plugin is in c++ not python). Cheers!
