I have implemented my own transferable object that represents an image and it's associated flavors. I am creating a transferable out of an animated gif image and setting it to the System Clipboard through SysClipboard.setConents(). As soon as I call this method, the application freezes and I had to eventually kill it by pressing CTRL+C. This is noticed only on Win32 platforms and not on Solaris / Linux. This is happening only for animated images and not for normal images. This is noticed on Tiger as well as Mustang.
I have attached a sample test. Execute the sample test. You would see a frame with 2 buttons and 2 canvases. One of the canvases will show an animated java logo. Click 'Copy' button. After that, if the frame freezes, the bug is reproduced.
