A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
When swing components are working with the clipboard they should handle the
possible IllegalStateException thrown by the getContents() or setContents() operations as mentioned in bug with id 4464162.
The IllegalStateException is thrown when another process is busy with the clipboard, swing components that use the clipboard will get the IllegalStateException. If this happens while the user uses the "ctrl-c" or "ctrl-v" shortcuts, there is absolutely no application code in the stack when the IllegalStateException occurs.
Thus, if you get an IllegalStateException, causes the application to crash, as there is nothing that handles the exception.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Be very quick with ctrl-c/ctrl-v
This bug can be reproduced occasionally.
