Using the mouse for cut-and-paste actions within Emacs I often see an
args-out-of-range error as follows:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (args-out-of-range 161682 161682)
  get-char-property(161682 field)
  comint-insert-clicked-input((mouse-2 (#<window 34 on *Backtrace*> 161682 (242 
. 278) 42937896)))

I can raise this error as follows:

1. Split the window (C-x 2).

2. Start a shell in one window (M-x shell RET).

3. In the other window load a multi-line text; e.g.

    list=$(seq -f %04g.txt 601 639)
    for f in $list; do 
      mv $f $f.orig
      tr -d '\15' <$f.orig > $f

   and mark it clicking mouse-1 at the start and mouse-3 at the end

4. Now, at the prompt in the shell window click mouse-2 and you should
   see the error.

It work if you first click mouse-1 and then mouse-2 (for yanking) in
the shell window.
