Did you try stepping through the code in BioCocoa, maybe that  
clarifies better what's happening here. I see that behaviour when I  
drag a rtf text into the sequenceView. On my machine, the original code:

- (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: type];
		[self insertText: aString];
		return YES;
		return NO;	

aString would still contain all the rtf code in it, only when  
changing the code to 	

NSString *aString = [pboard stringForType: NSStringPboardType];

  I get a plain string for aString. Filtering happens after that  
(through insertText).

Yep, I will add that.
