The problem recurred, even without reboot. It may be related to Atom text
editor or LXDE, since I use both. It's now the limited clipboard is only an
issue within the VM. Copying a moderate text (now the limit of large is
onto the 103rd line which is ~412 codepoints) truncates within the VM, but
in the Sculpt log the full copy occurs, and the full content can be pasted
to Sculpt apps but not in the VM! Killing the VBoxClient did not resolve
things. Very strange.
