Oh, and let's not forget the Apple GUI dialogs for unlocking encrypted hard disks images, which you can't paste into.

Also, when you paste into a password field (where you can, e.g. in a browser), why doesn't it clear the clipboard for you? I hate when I know I've got a password on my clipboard... it's like... this OCD thing where I feel like I need to wash my hands immediately.

Paste password... immediately find something innocuous to copy onto clipboard to clear it!
