Winxp, 3.0b2, but I suspect earlier as well, since reported on c.l.p.

If I paste '1+2\n' into the command window interpreter, it responds with
'3' and a new prompt.  In IDLE, the pasted \n is ignored and a typed \n
is required to trigger execution.  As a consequence, pasting multiple
statements does not work; anything after the first is ignored.

If this cannot be changed, following
	Paste            -- Insert system-wide clipboard into window
with                        (The shell will only recognize one statement)
would at least document the limitation.
