Re: Copy error message from messages window to clipboard?

There is a problem right now where, if you select just a part of a message in a 
Message cell, you can get a lot of unnecessarily complex stuff of the variety 
which you demonstrate below.  If you copy the entire Message cell (by selecting 
the cell bracket, or by selecting every bit of text, including the hyperlink at 
the end), you should get something much more reasonable.  This assumes that
you're using version 6 or 7 of Mathematica.

Sincerely,
