Remoteclipboard doesn't work over AppleVNC

This is more of a “documenting an issue” than looking for a solution:

I can’t get remoteclipboard to work when connected to a SUT over AppleVNC. My code is :

Drag "MinCatStart"
Drop "MinCatEnd"
TypeText CommandKey,"c"
set casetype to the first 4 characters of the remoteclipboard
log "Casetype: " & casetype 

This works fine when over vineVNC, but not over AppleVNC. I’ll be using VineVNC for this and other reasons, but VINE doesn’t handle logging in to the machine very well (drops the connection), which causes it to forget the SUT window position etc.

Apple’s implementation of VNC doesn’t implement clipboard support properly, just one of several ways that it’s broken.
