Since a while a copy action (command-c) adds the current selection to the clipboard instead of replacing the clipboard.

This mostly happens while coding in TextMate but also happened in CSSedit. The action makes a distinct "click" sound. This does not happen every time I do a copy and it drives me insane. I've searched the interwebs but could not find a solution.

Are you using LaunchBar or something similar?

Yes I use Launchbar... disabling the ClipMerge option fixed it (hopefully). Thanks! – danalog Oct 28 '10 at 9:06
