Highlighting then copying part of a Yahoo! Mail message fails to copy the message and prints a message to the console.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Safari/WebKit (or shipping Safari).
2. Log into Yahoo! Mail.
3. View a single message.
4. Use the mouse to select the "Subject:" line through the first few lines of the body of the message.
5. Hit cmd-C to copy.
6. Open TextEdit (or any app you can paste text into; I was using the Comments field of a Bugzilla bug).
7. Hit cmd-V to paste.
The selected text should be copied, then pasted.
The selected text was neither copied, nor pasted.
This is NOT a regression from shipping Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) on Mac OS X 10.4.9 (8P135).
Tested with a local debug build of WebKit r20427 with the above software.
This appears to be reproducible only on a single message I received on Yahoo! Mail. I will attempt to reduce it later today, or post source or a webarchive that demonstrates the issue.
Also, I'm not sure if this is a Safari bug or a WebKit bug.
Console output when the copy command fails (once for each failed copy attempt):

Load this test case, select all the text in the document, then hit cmd-C to copy. On a debug build, nothing will be copied, and a console message is printed:
