My another suggestion is, when text selection was implemented
'Cut', 'Copy', 'Paste' and 'Select All' menu item should be
added to the existing "Edit" menu which is already accessible
from both menu bar and context menu.

I've used MTASC to generate Flash file that tries
to generate a simple text field using ActionScript 2.

When run on Adobe Flash Player, the text was displayed correctly,
user is allowed to make selection and copy text. There's also
a context menu if user right-clicked on the text.

When run on Gnash, the text was correctly displayed,
but user cannot make text selection, thus cannot
copy text to any other application.

This is a correct result from Adobe Flash Player 9
You'd see that text selection was allowed, and (when right-clicked)
there's a context menu displaying supported actions.

This is an image result from Gnash 0.8.10
You'd see that text selection cannot be made.

This bug also holds for editable text field.
Test Flash file, source code and screenshots also attached.

Gnash: gnash_0.8.10-1~lenny from getgnash.org APT repository
System: Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 "Lenny" i386
