I can paste text into the form.   The problem is that for the specific site
I wanted to use it on, submitting the form tends to fail thereafter - I even
wondered if it was poking large amounts of text into the input buffer
without let-up that was causing the issue (since the form submission
JavaScript seems to contain code for auto-saving the text input every few
minutes), but alas typing text directly into the form doesn't produce any
better results.

The internal clipboard seems to paste fairly instantaneously, so I can
sometimes work around the issue with this page by copying the form content
to a 'Note', then repeatedly pasting it for resubmission until one attempt
finally goes through.   Unfortunately using the 'Insert Note' option
directly will crash the program every time.
