and then quoting text that describes discussion of the problem, but not
the problem itself, is not helpful.

Going back to your original email:

I still have not had time to try and reproduce this issue.  But a short
answer might be that the clipboard behaves differently on cygwin than on
other systems; it may be that your key-binding worked, but that bash's
attempt to read from the clipboard found no data.

Does 'cat /dev/clipboard' output the data you are expecting to see?
