VMWare Workstation 9 and Clipboard Fusion

First of all I would like to say how great clipboard fusion is and I can't believe that there isn't a similar feature built into windows, however its with great pain that I have to shutdown Clipboard Fusion quite often because I use VMWare Workstation 9 running a Windows 7 guest (although the guest doesn't seem to matter).

If clipboard fusion scrubs the clipboard VMWare doesn't seem to know the clipboard has changed and keeps its local clipboard text, once this happens it then appears to be very hit and miss if you can copy the clipboard into the guest OS.

It normally however copies out of the guest ok. If I close clipboard fusion down everything works well, if I only disable scrubbing I still get problems.

Is there any way Clipboard Fusion can throw the same signal Windows does saying "hey I just put something on the clipboard" to all the applications, then VMWare should catch this and overwrite the guest OS clipboard.

If this can be fixed it would be perfect.

Many thanks and keep up the good work.

Does this seem to happen after you've copied an image to or from the guest VM? I don't have any issues copying text back and forth, but as soon as I copy an image in or out of the VM, I run into trouble. Just wondering if you're seeing the same behaviour.
