In composing a message, I did a ctrl-shift select to move the text ", LispSupport" from the To': line to the cc': line.  That appeared to work fine.  I then finished the message and tried to deliver it.  Low and behold, where I had moved the text now had instead the characters " caught it, w" (same number of characters), which was part of the text that was roughly at the end of the message at the time I had done the original move. '
JDS 5/4':  Perhaps a problem with not clearing the insertion piece during MOVE?'
