I reproduced it tonight. Not only does Ctrl-V not work, it also can cause a crash if someone tries it.

The problem is that CTRL+V and Shift+INS end up being routed to the frame window, not the edit control. On the frame, they cause the application to (try to) paste a row into the logbook directly.

There's a lot of undesired behaviour here:

1) command routing isn't working correctly. It'll be hard to fix because there are lots of windows involved, in two or three layers. Focus won't be easy to track down or correctly fix.

2) Even when we intend to paste into the logbook, the code will add the new row and then completely drain memory of all records, then re-load the database. This takes an unacceptably long time.

3) Same problem with cut commands (like CTRL+X)

I think the issue may be compounded by the design of the window layout, which hides and shows the filter bar rather than creating and destroying it.

If you're able to create a crash, please provide a minidump.

Looks like this is caused by the main frame window having an accelerator that includes CTRL+V, CTRL+INS, CTRL+X, and so on. PreTranslateMessage ends up interpreting the accelerator and routing the the command to the main frame, always.

I'll have to figure out if the easiest fix is to ditch the entries in the accelerator table; doing so will let the edit control handle its own focused keystrokes. But then we'll need a hook to handle the keystrokes for the desired row-by-row copy pasta.
