I think I solved that, I changed readSelectionFromPasteboard in  
BCSequenceView to only accept NSStringPboardType:

- (BOOL)readSelectionFromPasteboard:(NSPasteboard *)pboard type: 
(NSString *)type{
	// the docs say to call this first, so we do ;-)
	[pboard types];
	// try to read a string, if not succesful bummer, otherwise insert it
	NSString *aString = [pboard stringForType: NSStringPboardType];		//  
only accept plain strings
		[self insertText: aString];
		return YES;
		return NO;	

Would this break anything else? If not, I will commit it.


- Koen.
