      Some apps request CF_TEXT, and some request CF_UNICODETEXT. If the
      exact type requested is there, Windows uses it directly. Otherwise,
      it "synthesizes" it from another convertable type.

      Also, we want CF_TEXT to be correct anyway for the case where
      CF_UNICODETEXT isn't supported (9x, apparently, despite MS's

      Right; I can't do that, so I post it to the list and hope someone else
      does. :)

      Even if it's an OE problem, if it's something we're triggering that we
      can fix, we should, at least if it occurs on more than one person's
      system and the fix isn't overly heinous (and there's no workaround
      available, such as upgrading OE).

      However, if nobody else can reproduce it, there's not much I can do, so
      I won't worry about it.
