Due to 32-bit time stamp issues, attempting to copy and paste on a 64-bit architecture using the clipboard may have failed occasionally. With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to ensure the time stamp always contains a "CARD32" value, so that copy and paste on 64-bit architectures works as expected.
