VB 6.0 MaskEdBox 6.0 Copy/Paste with Right Mouse Button!!

Anyone run into this before?

I have two MaskEdBoxes on a form both with the following mask ">CCCCCCCCCC".  I enter some text in the first box, highlight it using the mouse and copy it using the Right Mouse button and clicking on Copy.

I go to the second box and right click then click on paste.  The text is there but when I leave the box the text disappears.

It's a very annoying bug (Very simular to the newest IE4 security bug).

The easyest solution would to stop the user from pasting.

Not really a good answer...  Looked in the Knowledge base and couldn't find anything.  Will put it out there to see if anyone has a better answer...

How do you stop the pasting with the right mouse button anyway?  I saw this one time but can't remember the control or the property I was dealing with.

Another note is that if I do the copy/cut/paste using the Ctrl-V,C,X or Shift-Ins then it works just fine!!

Dim m_inchange As Boolean
Private Sub MaskEdBox2_Change()
    If Not m_inchange Then
        m_inchange = True
        On Error Resume Next
        MaskEdBox2.Text = MaskEdBox2.Text
        m_inchange = False
    End If
End Sub
