Ugh.  Something terrible like that.  Trevor, if you have

I've never had to to do it, as I rarely use
the git bash command line for git work.  I
can do virtually everything in git gui or
gitk, which cut and paste normally in both
Windows and Unix.  But I've just tried your

the git bash shell to a Windows app.  In the

I have never tried GIT on Windows, but if the window in question is a normal command prompt window, you can simplify the copy/paste somewhat if you right click on the title-bar of a command prompt window, select properties, mark "QuickEdit mode" and press OK. Once you have done that, you only have to do steps 3) and 4) to copy and you can right-click in the window to paste. This is one of the first settings I change after installing Windows on a machine.
