Second strain is when the copy paste issue happen, the user can find the clipboard, but the clipboard is inaccessible. Phone needs to be rooted to clear the clipboard clips.
But if you read my explanation, you see that I was in the first camp before updating to JB - could not access the clipboard. After updating, I could access my clipboard and clear it.
Bottom line - those of you who are not able to access and clear the clipboard, have you updated to JB? It worked for me.
