Closed as there wasn't any reply to my request on additional information for more then two years.

Does this issue still persist? I remember that some time ago Richard fixed an issue with DO that could be related to this one.

Could you please provide a short example application showing that issue. You are an experient developer and you have already an example that you can easily strip down to show this problem. When I or anybody else tries to reproduce this behaviour we have to write something fresh (everybody doing this in parallel) and may even fail to reproduce the problem you get due to differences in code.

When I call [NSPasteboard generalPasteboard] I get back different instances each time (or nearly every time). I believe this may be related to the fact that I'm accessing the pasteboard from multiple threads. When I receive a new instance, the previously returned instance is no longer valid, and sending a message to it causes a crash (segmentation fault).

If necessary, I could consider rewriting parts of my application to try to access the pasteboard only in the main thread, but I'd really rather not. It works fine as it is in OS X.
